The problem is how it's organized! If I want to do something, but don't know how, there's no way to see if the book addresses it! I'd have to know ahead of time that the solution is a paper clip or vinegar, or whatever. The only way I know to get around this while reading it, is to always use little sticky tabs in order to mark ones you think you'd use. Even so, you can't predict everything! Maybe if this book had an index it would make it a lot more practical.
Even so, it's a fun read, and if you can keep all these little ideas in your head, then definitely get it!
Listing the help in alphabetical order is a bonus. The illustrations and the colors are the best.
Yes, maybe some of the hints were ones I've seen before but so what? Good advice can always be repeated.
I am satisfied with the book and its contents. It is a beneficial addition to my collection. Thank you.
