Pauleen Turner presents many aspects of crochet with this title. From threads, yarns, hooks, to the contemplation of colors, to finishing a project, she covers all the basics. It is also one of the few books you will find that covers 'broomstick crochet'. It includes an excellent index and glossary, as well as a thorough bibliography. My only hesitance in recommending this book is that it is written by an experienced crocheter who seems to have forgotten some of the stumbling blocks of the beginning crocheter. She expects the reader to know how to overcome many of the difficulties encountered in learning the craft. On the other hand, careful study of this text, combined with continual practice, can eventually make an expert out of anybody. All in all, I recommend this book for the intermediate-to-experienced crocheter, and to the beginner with a lot of time on their hands. I learned a lot from this book. It contains several patterns that I've not found anywhere else. I have a copy on my bookshelf and refer to it frequently.
