- All of the basic information you need to begin crocheting. Review by Pamela
I like this book. It is spiral bound, which makes it nice to use while I am working, it lays flat and stays open. I like the compact size, it is not heavy and fussy. The illustrations help me to see what I need to do, along with the written directions. I like the first section titled, Tools, Yarns, and Gauges. It gives the reader information everyone needs to know to have a successful start. It is a nifty little primer with all of the basic information you need to begin crocheting.

- The Crocheter's Companion Review by Carle
I purchased this book a few months ago and was very disappointed with it. It was smaller than I thought it would be, which reduces the size of everything in it. Additionally, it was printed in very light ink. This makes it very difficult to read. Along with the size, it makes this book useless. I returned the book, which cost me the shipping in both directions, but I thought you should know I felt the book was misrepresented. Apparently you don't know that half of the population is over the age of 50 years. By age 40, most people need glasses. Anyone in this age group is going to have trouble with the ink and the paper being the same value. They need black ink and a font that is easier to read. I would guess this book is aimed at the 20 year old. In which case, you should identify this in your description of the book.
