I've always enjoyed Ms Fitzgerald's books and I have learned a lot from them. When I saw this new one, I had to have it. The shaped beads and the techniques for making them are fascinating and I enjoyed looking at the samples and trying to follow the instructions.
Sadly, this is where this could-be-wonderful book falls down. There are too many errors to be excused as just one of those unfortunate things. Yes, I know corrigenda are available from the author's web site. There are two A4 pages of corrections and Ms Fitzgerald does not seem unduly concerned about that.
The worst is yet to come: the corrections have errors, too. Enough said.
