and i have found that some diagrams are wrong, some instructions are wrong
and sometimes both in the same model!
Im good at origami, and i can make the model if only the diagrams or only the instructions are badly written and depicted. But i found that some models are not possible to do due to both the diagrams and the instructions are wrong.
That is not ok... i know there are some complex models in origami, and it is not the fault of the model but the person skills.. but when you cant fold a simple model because bad instructions, that is not good.
The problems is that it seems the editorial and the author are waiting to the second edition to correct this mistakes, but what about the rest of the people who bought the book already? it would be nice if the corrections were public in his site already, it has been more than a year...
I dont recommend this book for that reason,
the models are interesting and simple, but what is the point???
The problem is, however, that it uses drawings for all of the diagrams, and this means you have such enjoyable effects as what one reviewer elsewhere called the 'ambiguous' directions for the Storage Box with Lid. It's not ambiguous. You physically cannot get what the diagram for step 8 depicts as the expected result from step 7, and it is a complete mystery how you do what step 8 wants to get the completed box.
The picture provided is very pretty, but provides absolutely no clues whatsoever as to what the problem with the directions actually is; all it is possible to say is that the final picture in the direction does seem to match. How, exactly, you are supposed to get to this state is apparently in the realm of Fermat's last theorem: a problem left for the reader, with the horribly mistaken assumption that it is obvious.
The cover model is slightly less bad in its directions--I can see what some of the other people here have had as a problem with it. It's not impossible to figure out what to do from the diagrams, but it certainly isn't at all easy to understand. It's not quite as significant a problem--ambiguous actually does look to apply here--but it's still not really one to be having in an origami book that's supposed to be of projects anyone can make.
