A disappointing book. Visually illiterate, it contains no visual instructions or designs, only written instructions. This wouldn't be so bad if those verbal directions actually corresponded to the key at the back, but half the stitches mentioned are not listed or described there. Yes, there is a link to a website, but as my computer is at work and my crochet is done at home, this option is useless for me. Some of the photography is hopeless too, with white stitching shot against a white background. This book may be useful for someone familiar with all the stitches used, and doesn't need to look them up, or for a person who doesn't think visually, as most artists and crafts people do. Such a shame as these things would have been easy to address, and the editors should have noticed these problems.
