This book has many illustrations of historic Yantras and details of the significance of its geometric drawings. I liked this book for the depth of analysis and the description of underlying concepts. Please note that this is NOT an instruction work book on Yantras which details about how to make a Yantra.
One disappointing fact is that the author uses little space to describe Occult Yantras which are commonly used by ordinary people for protection, healing and power. The Sri Yantra, which enables a person to attain higher states is described in detail. Overall this book gave me indepth knowledge about the working of a Yantra - the energized cosmic machine.
I have a workshop for paint cars, and I am starting in chroming, so I will star soon to draw and paint yantras with chrome paints, can you imagine how very beautyful will this be?
The book is complete, honestly is a fantastic book..., you can find all about the history and spiritual and religious origin of the Yantras in the Universe.
Are you interested in know about the Yantras? Buy this book....
Are you interested in draw Yantras for dedicate those to the Goddess or teach to draw them or include to sell them?

Buy too: Nine designs for inner peace, by Sarah Tomlinson.
I have both books, and I am very happy...
This book provides detailed, concise info regarding what the different yantras represent and how they work. I would have appreciated more information about the pecularities of use for different traditions. In any case i can't recommend this book enough. Thank goodness this book has not gone out of print.
