Nothing beats actually having one to one tuition on the wheel. However as a source book for ideas and reminder of techniques this book is Well illustrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Excellent Book on a New Subject For Me 22 Nov. 2011
By gracies mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a beginner potter in a class with a teacher with whom I cannot get what I need about the process. I bought this book in the hope that it could guide me and show me how to center and pull a simple piece. Since getting it I am finaly beginning to understand how to do that.
The writing is direct and gracious and the pictures are clear and informational.
There are many cross cuts to show just how thick the walls of the piece concerned should be. In fact the author suggests doing just that to newly thrown peices until one understands the amount of clay in the walls of ones' cylinder.
Very informative and simple yet inspriational and above all helpful.
I am enjoying learning from this format and teacher.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource with fun projects 19 May 2015

I use this book to teach an intermediate pottery class. We did many of the projects in the book. I often refer to the book for technique refreshers such as pulling handles, centering, troubleshooting. I have recommended this book to many of my students!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ceramics for beginners-Wheel Throwing 21 Aug. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this book. I am just a beginner so I am still mastering many of the techniques in this book. However the book has beautiful projects in it and I like the fact that Emily has a couple of utube videos I can watch to go along with the book. I think she is a talented potter.
