The title promises 211 ways to begin and end your project. I ordered the book since I wanted to have all in one place but I found out that I am often unable to work following instructions in this book and I rather go back to my notes and web sources.
What I don't like about this book:
- step-by-step drawings have no arrows to show direction of movements. You cannot guess what to do just following the pictures. You have to read and the text as well, every time, and it is slow.
- I would prefer much deeper information about the individual COs and BOs. I wish the book included at least the "right" side and "wrong" side photos. It includes only the "right" side view. For example, if I use my favorite CO with stockinette, it curls more if I CO and purl the first row (WS) than if I CO and knit the first row (RS).

I like the three tables at the beginning of the book. What I miss are the page references. Let's say I search for a CO that prevents curling. The table offers several ones but I have to look them up in the index at the end of the book to get their page numbers.

I am not an experienced knitter but I really like to know how things work and I enjoy books that are well organized and are written by authors who have lots to say about the subject, technically. And if the book is to be an overview, a time-saver, then it should have really clear step-by-step drawings, be smaller in size and if spiral-bound then better quality so that you can turn pages easily. The layout could be more compact to save pages and arranged so that even if the book was smaller the drawings remained the same size.

This really shows you a load of differnt ways of casting on and off. I have found this vital to exoand my repertoire for less stretchy wools, circular knitting etc. this book certainly does the job of explaining all your options very well. They are all shown in pictures and are very easy for a beginner to pick up, even if you leave off some of the more complex ones for a year or so. If you have ever finished a jumper and found it unwearable as the neck or bottom is too tight, then you need a book like this, and it is the best I have found so far. However, it doesnt inspire you beyond the basics much in the same way as Nicky Epsteins books on decorative edgings, and I wouldve liked an easier way of searching for edgings by flexibility etc, hence the four stars.

In summary, a good solid book for an essential oart of the knitting process which is so often left out.

This book was recommended through an online class I took and it's a must have for any knitters bookshelf. Ive had it for less than a week and already used it twice.

The book is split into 2 sections; cast on and bind off, which is further split into different groups of these methods such as long-tail cast ons, decorative cast ons, sock cast ons etc.

Each method is given the most common name for it, with further familiar names in italics below. They are well described with good illustrations and the author also gives suggestions for when you should use them and also provides the matching bind off.

I'm sure I'll be using it for many years to come.

I know and use about 6 different cast ons. and about the same on my knitting machines but this book really opened my eyes.

There are good clear illustrations.

I have looked at this book on an e-reader and my Kindle Fire and I have to say the pictures and illustrations are clearer on the Kindle Fire.

It showed a Picot hem but not the one I learnt on my knitting machine and do on my hand knitting - with a thinner yarn the same colour as the main yarn on the back of the picot hem. This means the picot hem does not kink upwards at front or back.

Great book giving clear instructions and reasons for using different cast-ons. I have several other books about cast-ons, but this one is he best.

Seems very comprehensive.... A cable-rib cast-on for a 3*3 rib is already improving my finish!

I think this book will be the new bible for all knitters. It explains the steps in a no nonsense manner and provides pictures too for extra clarification. I love it. Money well spent.
