This might be a useful and interesting book for a teenager or someone who is just getting into sewing, but don't expect to learn anything from it if you've been sewing for a while.
Even at the beginning of the book there is a table of contents with photos, so you know at a glance which subject you want.
I consider myself an advanced sewer, but there are techniques here I cannot wait to try!
