A note about the pattern sizes:
The sizes all start at 32-40 inch chest, with the exception of one that starts at 30-32 inch. The majority of the patterns go up to fit chest size 44-46 inch. There is only one pattern that goes to a 40-42 inch. There are Two that go up to 46-48 inch and one that goes up to 48-50 inch. I hope this helps!
I don't know the age of the reviewer who stated the patterns seemed for younger women, but I'm 50 and there are several patterns from this book that I will be making for myself in the near future: the Twice as Nice Cardigan, Push the Boat Out Sweater and the Shawl Collered Cardigan, just to name a few. I, too, enjoyed the "Look Again" sections, where the author took the same pattern, altered it slightly, used different yarn and created a whole new look by just changing a few things. It adds so much to the book and helps me look at patterns and styles with new eyes.
The format is lovely, with great photos, clear instructions and fun ideas. Considering I normally get my patterns free off the internet, it's a big deal for me to shell out money for a pattern book. To me, this book was worth it.
