Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent book with one major caveat. It is aimed at the novice, accept that and it is excellent, approach it with some knowledge and it is the wrong book for you. It's major advantage is that is presents a simplified view, it has removed a lot of the technical details from the subject and presents a simple way of modifying it's patterns. A simple example is the included patterns. If you buy a pattern from another source they will include a lot of markings, notations and options that are excluded in the versions here. Those notations are useful and valuable but demystifying the subject also means simplifying it.
Buy it, use it and move on to something more sophisticated
