I'm not very patient or artistic, so I wish this book had a few more pictures. (In some of the more complicated hairstyles, steps are skipped.) Overall, though this book is interesting, fun, and offers great tips and tricks for styling your hair in general, as well as the instructions for hairstyles from the 20s-80s.
