I haven't been disappointed.
A lot of the games are shown with a single picture as a 'how to start' example, then a written description lets you know how you would move those cards to play the game.
Some of the more simple games are just explained in writing.
They are all various types of the same game, based on a single person playing patience. If you want more a more varied mix of games (poker or bridge for example), then this isn't the book for you. However, if like me you wanted a mix of games that a single person can play, then this gives you plenty to choose from. In fact, a little over sixty games. I grew up playing the Klondike version of patience, and I look forward to learning more.
Ideal if you're fed up of a phone game needing power, or if you lose power at home for any reason. Or even just doing something like camping. There are lots of places you can put your new playing skills to the test.
I can see I'll be playing these games for a long time to come!
