The author gives the reader a firm historical background of the English Hand Comb. I very much looked forward to this, having read his article in Spin-Off. (Okay I confess I am a bit of a history geek.)
I found the instruction easy to follow, but I am someone that easily learns from written text. So this book might not be a great choice for someone that learns best by either watching or doing.
He also explains the differences between 4 and 5 pitch combs, the most effective way to use them, etc.
I'd say this was an excellent in-depth resource for anyone interested in spinning hard-wearing wool for things such as socks.
