The content itself is 5 stars. There is a huge variety of projects for varying skill levels. The author provides some fascinating historical background on what the pieces were originally used for and how they were made. The projects are illustrated with measurements and explosion views so you have a better idea of exactly how they all fit together. there are also special sections with the projects giving more detail on how to do the more unusual or complicated parts.
Unfortunately, the formatting does not work on Nook. There's no way to expand the pages so that you can actually read it. On the Nook, the writing is so tiny that I could barely make it out.. I was sort of able to read the descriptions with great effort, but I would not trust that I could see it clearly enough to use the measurements. I can't even see if maybe it shows up larger online since it currently isn't available on Nook for web. If there had been a preview available to have realized that this was a problem, I would not have bought it in the first place. as it is, I will probably ask for a refund and see about just buying a hard copy. Very disappointed.
