Money is tight right now, so I am careful about which books I buy. This one is valuable enough that I will order another to replace my damaged copy.
What I like:
The special stitches are described within the pattern so you don't have to do a lot of flipping to the back of the booklet. The booklet lays flat, so you can easily read and crochet at the same time. The booklet is more affordable and lightweight than a book. Stitch multiples are included so that you can easily adapt the stitches for a project of a different width.
What I don't like (or what's missing):
Most of the stitches are pretty standard, so if you have any other stitch guides, there is likely to be a lot of overlap. There is no pattern difficulty rating listed. The font is fairly small. There are no stitch symbols, only pattern abbreviations.
I give this booklet 4 stars if it is your first stitch guide, but only 3 stars if you already own a comprehensive stitch guide. It is a good starter for someone interested in learning more stitches or working a pieced afghan.
The reason it gets only 3 stars is the photo of each square is not on the same page as the instructions. The photos are on pages 10-17, while the instructions are on pages 1-9 and 18-26. This makes for a poor user experience. It leaves the reader to have to flip back and forth between the page w/ a square's instructions and the page w/ the square's photo when trying to learn how to build the square. Better would have been to put each square's instructions and photo on the same page.
