Often the author assumes knowledge that I don't have. For instance, she has a whole page devoted to making endbands, but she never explains what an endband IS. She also does not show a diagram of one in use. I suppose I could go to the web and get a lesson on that, but then why do I need the book?
This might be a great text for a class taught by the author. As a stand-alone teaching aid it lacks substance.
I found the book "Cover to Cover" by Shareen LaPlatz to be more useful. It is a smaller book with many fewer binding types, but each one is explained in clear detail with adequate drawings for each project.
Thank you Alisa, for writing it!
