This is less of a traditional cross stitch book, and more of a collection of various full products. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's not that it's poorly put together, but there are maybe 3 patterns that I would actually use, and I couldn't imagine giving it as a gift. It's not easily accessible to people just starting out, and it isn't flexible enough for more advanced users.
Like other reviewers, I didn't *love* every design in the book, but I would be surprised if there was any book on earth in which every pattern appealed to any one person. I've made several of the projects so far (including calaveras [sugar skulls], a tromp l'oeil skull/water scene, a "Bite Me" vampire-esque design) and I plan to make more when I finish other projects (especially the burlesque zombie). The book also contains a good tutorial for those who are completely new to cross stitching.
I would recommend this book to my crafty friends that like different patterns. I showed the book to my grandmother (aged 76) and she thought is a Halloween themed book (probably because of skull and vampire themed patterns).
