It is an outstanding source for the subject and one of the few that offers comparative study of different decorative traditions, including the very rarely mentioned Scandinavian maritime powers.
This book is not and never was intended to be a step-by-step carver's textbook. The other reviewer has clearly missed entirely the point of the book, had purchased it without reading the description.
