This book has some nice projects, however I find it annoying that you tend to need different equipment for them - e.g. I really wanted to make one of the necklaces but I didn't have any of the equipment so didn't bother buying even more equipment that I probably won't use again!
Personally, I don't think I'll be making much from this book - I've read it and had it for a while but I think I'm going to just make the vintage Sci-Fi book cozie! Perhaps I am just not geeky enough...
Overall - if you are into many crafts and consider yourself a geek, you will love it! However, not really for me as it has too wide a range of equipment needed. 3/5
The book contains a number of craft projects all geared at geeky recipients; the Star Wars terrariums are a pretty cool idea, as are the solar system plates but the only qualm I have is that these are for intermediate to advanced-skill crafters, so not ideal for those new to hand made projects.
Given, full instructions are provided, such as for the Buffy the vampire slayer needlework portrait, but these projects will take TIME and considerable skill to make so I would buy this book only if you are truly dedicated to the cause. Additionally, the time taken would not give you a profit should you decide to sell your makes, and as such the subject matter will also limit your selling capabilities. For true geek-crafters only.

Great ideas, easy to follow tutorials, overall a great bookPublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
Some good projects but most require items which are difficult to buy small quantities of, so you're left with lots of leftovers. Read morePublished 7 months ago by HarryJ
