Verdict The stitch dictionary isn’t comprehensive, but crocheters who are interested in exploring lacework or designing their own lacework patterns will appreciate the focus, and the sections on Irish crochet and Bruges lace may introduce these techniques to a wider audience." - Library Journal

The lace stitches shown are good, and once you get over the US terminology for the stitches, seem to be fairly clear. The motifs look beautiful, although I've yet to try them. The ring bound format means the book is bulkier than it needs to be, but I suspect it'll have a longer life since you're not stressing the spine to get the book to stay open where you want it.
Overall, I suspect that I'll keep dipping into this book or the lace patterns and motifs which is what I primarily wanted, so 4 stars.
Irish crochet and freeform crochet techniques and motifs are also included. So go to town with all this book provides and be willing to use it to create something different. I like the fancy shamrock and the Not-so-Victorian Collar is a great project in this section. In the Freeform section there are three tops to make - I didn't think they were very freeform - just the collar. Learn how to make Bruges Lace too, the technique and a stunning top. These last three sections are brief. This is a great book for crocheters wanting to take a leap to the next level. It's worth it. Clear instructions and photographs.
I had no idea that Crochet could be so versatile and that there are so many other forms of crochet too!!
I would definitely recommend buying it, as it opens up to a fascinating world of Crochet!
