    What a disappointment!

    This book had so much potential and failed! The information and story of Mr. Noro was brief and did not really give much insight into the man. Could have used so much more of the interview in the book. Also, the patterns were reruns of earlier patterns published by Noro. Nothing new if anyone had already bought some Noro pattern books. This book was a prettily published rerun!
