    Such a pleasure to read! Seriously, check it out!

    At first I was intimidated by the complexity of the book but once I started reading I fell in love! She even gives you how toos on making your very own design, something I wasn't expecting at all! I would definetly recommend this book to anyone who wants to try the Mariner's Compass
