If you are a newbie to BJDs this book is a MUST for you! If you have been around for a few years, you will still enjoy reading the fun and entertaining text and looking at the gorgeous dolls. And if you have a friend or relative who collects these dolls, I can guarantee she or he would live to find it wrapped up under the Christmas tree!
I'm reeeeaaaaaalllllyyyyy new to this hobby and have done heaps of research on my own, but I've gotta say, it's kind of overwhelming and sometimes confusing. Sure this information may be available online in some way or another, but it's really a relief having it all in one place, especially being new. It is pretty thin (although not as thin as another review made me think) but it's not a story book, it's a resource that you can always refer back to, love it! And the price? Come on, for what you pay for dolls and their accessories, this is probably under priced!
The author also writes in a very approachable way. I had found it difficult to find someone to talk to and ask questions about these dolls online (I don't know anyone in the hobby), but after reading this, I feel like I've found someone to answer my questions, so for that I am very grateful!
So all in all, great resource for beginners and beyond, I can see myself referring back to this book over and over in the future, I just hope she does a rewrite every few years or so as the community and market change. Thanks for this book!
