I've built so many wheels and evaluated so many wheel components and building techniques that I've stopped counting.

Musson strongly advocates for not relying on manufacturers' numbers or ones found on the internet. Instead he describes in detail how to measure both hubs and rims and consequently calculate the correct spoke lengths an online calculator is provided on his website.
At this point, the reader should have all the ingredients required and be ready to start actually building the wheel, which is discussed in the following two chapters. Chapter 7 discusses lacing the wheel. Musson's instructions here are very easy to follow, and for the first time I was able to effortlessly lace a wheel correctly on the first try, even getting the "read-the-hub-label-through-the-valve-hole" thing right.
Tensioning and truing the wheel is the topic of chapter 8. Through my volunteering at a community bike shop, I'm much more experienced with truing and tensioning than with lacing, and therefore a lot of the information presented by Musson wasn't new to me. The final substantive chapter discusses repairing existing wheels, dealing with broken spokes, worn rims, or shot hubs.
Chapters 10 and 11 provide a few additional illustrations and a one-page wheelbuilding checklist. In contrast to many other e-books, this allows reading the book on many different devices and also easy printing.
The typesetting and image resolution is very good for a self-published book. An additional advantage related to this way of publishing is that it allows easy updates to the book. Its first version appeared in , and the book that I bought is already the sixth edition.
