I love that book, I do not know why one reviewer called the designs out there. I think there is a lot of great stuff in this book. I am actually knitting a reversible vest from it, I learnt to double knit and I am very excited about it. Veronique Avery is a wonderful designer and she had a contribution in the book. A lot of others contributed wonderful ideas. Just check out Ravelry and you will see the patterns.

I'm not happy with this book at all. I bought it for the stitch on the cover and that is the only stitch in the whole book I like, and after seeing the picture close up it's not that great looking either. The patterns and stitches do not fit my style at all and I thought I was a little trendy and contemporary. They remind me of runway fashion shows - the designs are so out there to me I don't know who would wear them.
There is some interesting information about double sided knitting and various cast ons. I am an intermediate to advanced knitter and I felt that some of the explanations (especially for the stitch patterns) were confusing and over my head.
