My mother would hate this book because it encourages me to continue all of my annoying habits, like keeping bits of string and sticks and rocks and rolled glass and buttons and dead growths from trees.

She would like people to believe I am a hoarder; really, I just find the world interesting and like having interesting things at my fingertips.

I'm not at home right now, so mainly this book made me wish for my glass-jar collection, which I purchased at a yard sale for $2 right before moving.

The only thing I didn't like about this book were the hokey "cut this out" and "paste this here" things, when they obviously weren't intended to be used that way. There are some interesting diagrams and layouts to copy for documentation journals and such, though.
