This was a pretty funny book- although I wouldn't say as good as "I Like You." I was able to read the book front to back relatively quickly, and the descriptions for some of the crafts are hilariously vague.

I guess what I love about the book is that it pokes fun at crafting books, in a sense that the crafts themselves aren't hard. In fact anyone can figure out how to make them just by looking at the picture. It is just simply no everyone is "creative" enough to think it up themselves. Of coarse Amy pokes fun at other things about "crafting" such as impracticality and isolation.

I guess my overall view of the book is that it isn't as good as "I Like You" since there is overall less material. It is a little more flip to a page, laugh, flip to another page.
