But the format is very overwhelming. It reads more like an encyclopedia of French beading techniques with just a few projects in the back for you to try, provided your head isn't bursting from all the info. I would have liked to see some projects with the more advanced techniques, I do not recommend this on an e-reader, as you will find yourself constantly going back to the reference pages which is not very convenient on an e-reader when you are trying to create. All in all, it is a valuable book technically if you are planning to take your craft to the level beyond the basic rose or daisy petals. If you are looking for a book that will have you jumping in with lots of pictures and projects, this isn't it.
