Recommends it for: crocheters, knitters who want to branch out to another yarn skill
I bought this book in a mad rush to find *something* to learn while pregnant with my first baby... I hadn't crocheted in about 12 years at that point. I chose this book based on the excellent instructional photographs and the great base of skills it taught. I still refer to it now more than any of my other books for basic knowledge.

The photos use bright yarn and close up snapshots of the work so that you can see exactly where your yarn needs to go in each stitch or work. Advanced skills such as

Very useful for people wanting to learn how to crochet
This book covers a bit of everything. While the basic stitches don't have the best explanations I've seen the specialty stitches and cords are explained well and the book as a whole has a lot of very good pictures. The book covers working in circles, tunisian crochet, how to edge fabric and make inserts, as well as making motifs and working around ribbons and making hairpin lace.

I borrowed this from the library & decided to buy Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Crochet instead. This isn't a bad book by any means, there are good pictures and clear instructions but as a beginner I found myself looking for some basic information that wasn't covered. I wouldn't mind owning this book as part of my library but for information I think the other has more content.
It's an amazing craft, and, although I'd like more lengthy explanation of stitching how-to, there were ample amounts of close-up color photos for each stitch. Maybe someday I can play around with this skill that my grandmother taught me, way back when I was only 5! I understood it better then than I believe I do now!
Very good. Useful. I have used several of the stitches and guidelines found within.
I bought it to learn, but the stitch and bitch book was better.
