This book is, as the title says, for a beginner. Seemingly it was written for children to read, as there are references like cleaning up after yourself so your parents will let you keep carving. It's basic, but if you know a kid who is looking to try whittling, it's a good starting point and would make a good gift. (Combine it with an Old Timer or Swiss Army pocket knife, and you're on a sure fire winner.)

While it wasn't any use to me as a carver, I do think it holds merit for its simplicity and straightforward approach. It's basic carving, and the project within is a great little starter. Little tricky in spots, but good for building confidence in young ones. (I'll not tell you what the project is, you'll have to buy it to find that out!)

Not the best beginners book on wood carving. But, I gave the Kindle ed. to a friend and she's thrilled. I got a copy for myself, and I found some info of interest.

I bought this book thinking that there would be some useful projects in the book, there was very little and none of them useful. Save your money and buy another book
