This book is not so much a complete course in crocheting as it is an excellent reference for new and experienced stitchers. There are no patterns or designs to follow, simply a top-notch series of instructions about starting and specific stitches. This Italian import is not organized in any logical way; Irish lace motifs, like the Lancelot leaf and the eight-petal flower, for example, are discussed separately from each other with nary a cross-reference--a bit disconcerting, if not frustrating. However, the directions and full-color photographic details are truly spectacular; ideas such as ribbon borders and interlocking rings, among others, are not necessarily incorporated in other how-to books. For any age, any level. Barbara Jacobs

If I did have a complaint about the book, it would be that the grouping of lessons seems to be somewhat scattered. For example, a few lessons on edging will be separated from the others by a lesson or two on Irish lace.
I should also mention that if you are looking for a book of patterns, this is not it. This book is best used for learning specific techniques that can be be implemented in creating your own patterns or can be used to increase your ease in completing other's patterns.
That being said, my final opinion is that Crocheting School is an invaluable addition to any crocheter's library.
