While this book won't win any prizes for originality, for its price it gives a great range of projects. Most are clothing and accessoires, but there are some home projects and smaller projects (like crocheted flowers) as well. The clothing projects are mostly for teens and young women, though there are some patterns for all ages and some for children. In contrast, some of the coverlets/blankets/pillow covers are fairly old-fashioned. A downside of this book is that quite a lot of the projects (I think as much as 1/4) use novelty yarn, which makes it hard or impossible to see the underlying pattern.
The patterns are written in the most concise way possible, which means you have to keep VERY good track of where you are in the pattern not to get hopelessly lost the next time you pick up your work. I haven't made anything yet from this book so I can't say whether there are any mistakes.

100 crochet projects, only 3 of which I'd even consider making. The rest are old fashioned, boring, unflattering and uninspiring - even the yarn choices and colours are dull. Not even sure who exactly this book is aimed at -saggy crochet bikini with matching potholder and dishcloth set, anyone?
