It has great illustrations and project instructions.
As a beginner this is exactly what I was looking for.
I will point out that several if not most of the projects have a list of tools needed and include power tools in some cases (e.g., power drill, etc.). While it is possible to complete the projects without the power tools, the projects will take a bit longer and require some diligence and ingenuity in the carving process which is not a bad thing for people to develop. If you are on your own and wanting a place to start this book can ease you into the world of making wood chips.
