"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

*Starred Review* The wide parameters of the colorful world of felting will come as a surprise to all but the most experienced felters, who, along with those of novice status, are the audience expert crafter Lane addresses in this large-format, comprehensive guide. Lane offers this basic definition of felting: wool fibers are matted into fabric that historically was used as effective protection against the elements but has become a popular craft for perhaps less utilitarian but certainly increased aesthetic purposes. A presentation of fundamental practices leads the reader to confront and absorb lessons on advanced techniques, with directions by Lane expressed in patient prose and the ample illustrations assisting the text well. The greatly informative chapter “All about Wool” discusses such topics as grading wool and the various “breeds” of wool (which depend on the breeds of sheep from which they are derived). Washing the wool, carding, and dyeing round out the book’s introductory portion, at which point the author imparts detailed information on three types of felting: traditional wet felting, Nuno felting, and needle felting, with techniques and sample projects given careful elucidation. A concluding gallery of greatly creative felted works by an array of artists adds final inspiration. For more encyclopedic treatments of various crafts, see the adjacent Read-alikes column. --Brad Hooper

May I say that this book is worth every cent? The price was reasonable, and when I bought it was going to look at it for wet felting techniques. After getting it and reading through it, I've found myself completing a dry felting design on a iPhone case I made.
I like how the book has oodles and oodles of color pictures, which are of excellent quality. They have inspired me to do think of projects that I wouldn't even have thought of doing.
I would recommend this book to be a reference for all types of felting. It's a real keeper!
