The book briefly explains each method, how to execute the method, and the supplies needed. It lists resources for further learning about each method, and the origins of the methods - which is great! In my brief experience in using the book, I've noticed a few places where text was cut an pasted from another method, but not edited to suit. Ex. p119, p120 (Bodystorming, and Boundary Shifting) - the "Why use this method" section is identical, without omitting the term Bodystorming. Just little details.
I would give it more stars if:
1) it were more comprehensive. You get a fly-over of each method, but in many cases you need to search the origins to get a better understanding about how to implement.
2) the font/text-weight were easier to read.
