I've come back to this book many times since I bought it.
I enjoy its high-level overview of the history, parts, and use of wheels. I especially like pondering the long evolution of this essential craft, based on what I learned from this book. Humans wouldn't have survived without learning how to spin, I think. Yet, the modern wheel wasn't invented until 1533! The flyer and the bobbin, separate from the drive wheel, was a huge step forward. But I digress.
This little book covers the essentials of spinning with a hand spindle, and many wheels. It covers preparing fibers, spinning, plying, skeining. It even covers novelty yarns. I'm not in any hurry to spin cattail or milkweed fluff, but this book tells you how!
If you're the type who can learn a hands-on skill from a book, then this will help you. For its very small cost, it sure has a lot of information to give you. I took a class to learn spindle and wheel spinning, but I use the book as reference and for ideas. I do not regret having bought it.
I believe many people will enjoy this book as much as I have, and glean as much benefit from it.
