When the book said there were 200 photos of how to do the projects I expected it would be full A4 size but it isn't, it is much smaller so all the photos are small and are not really step by step instructions. I would happily have paid more for the book in exchange for more comprehensive instructions/diagrams. I just think it was a mistake condensing it all into a small book which I would not have bought had I been able to inspect it in a shop.
