"These mandalas can be colored more quickly than some, but can also be colored with great detail if desired. What you will end up with is a beautiful, unique creation, but the process itself will be an engaging one. Beautiful mandalas, can be completed in a relatively short sitting." --Stress.About.com
About the Author
Jim Gogarty has had a passion for drawing for as long as he can remember, ranging from crayons to felt tips to today’s digital pen. He began drawing mandalas in 2005 after a spiritual awakening during meditation. Since then, he has worked to turn this love for the symmetrical patterns into a career. He currently runs iHeartMandalas.com, where he brings these images to life.

Some of these mandalas are funky and fun, and others are more traditional. The paper has a nice thickness and good texture. I would definitely buy again, even without the panic attack.
I'm using a set of BIC Mark-It Color Collection Ultra Fine Permanent Marker, Assorted, 36 Markers and Sharpie permanent markers, both of which I got here at Amazon and I highly recommend them. I have the 36 pack of the Bic markers, but many of the colors are too dark so if you buy specifically for this book, I recommend the set of 24. I also tried a variety of gel pens but found they took too long to dry and smeared too easily to be enjoyable. Crayons would works, too, and would be the easiest medium for kids to use.
They are challenging, but not overwhelming like many of the other coloring books. This is a great "gateway" coloring book for those who are unsure. If you are curious about coloring, order this book! I recommend Prismacolor colored pencils, or some nice fine Bic markers.
A word of caution -- I recommend tearing out the mandalas you are working on if you are using markers that bleed. Markers that bleed will be transferred onto the mandala on the next page! Take care to protect the other designs as you work. With colored pencil, this is not an issue.
