I was hoping the sample would show me whether this book can show me how to decipher patterns using terms I can really understand. Unfortunately the sample only includes refresher info on the basics of crochet itself. 96 pages seems generous but 2/3 of it was table of contents, author intros, and standard "how this dummies book works" text. I don't have enough information to decide whether it's worth the money to buy it.
