Billed as "the only embroidery reference you'll ever need"--well, maybe for some people, but I always like more than one point of view--it's not a bad place to start. The stitching instructions, and, most importantly, the visuals are clear and easy to follow. But what I like best about it is the set-up. The stitches are grouped in chapters talking about the particular style of embroidery they are associated with--blackwork, crewel, etc--and as a result they made sense to me in a way I hadn't experienced before. Also the book is both readily available and affordable. An all-around good addition to your stitch reference library.
