Since no one has left a review yet, I`ll give my opinion and hope it helps your decision.
First, I am not a crocheter (well, I did crochet an afghan in the 70`s, using only one color and one stitch (treble crochet), and that afghan was well used and is long gone).
I knit and enjoy knitting.
But some things are just meant for crocheting, and I think borders is just one of many that fit that category. And, I found it`s very helpful to have 150 illustrations of how to crochet borders that go around corners.

Most of the borders are shown on 2 pages, facing each other.
There are a few that are continued onto a 3rd page, and then a few that use just one page: i.e. p. 116, 117 & 118 are for border #51; p.119 is for border #52.
Each border is beautifully photographed and the instructions are both written and charted.
And the text and charts are easy to read (well printed and good sized).

And while I prefer spiral binding, the paper stock is quality and the binding is sound enough (so far) to allow me to lay the book out flat... which is probably the reason for the odd size...
It is short and wide. At first glance it makes one wonder why... then when actually using the book and reading a 2-page border, it becomes obvious: it stays open to those 2 pages - well done.

The first 26 pages contain information on "Maintaining a Flat Edge"; "Calculating the Number of Stitches"; "Adjusting the number of stitches"; "Crocheting Borders on Woven Fabric" (also on Felted Fabric); "Reading Crochet Patterns" (as well as crochet charts), and more.

There are tips, one being a "Note to UK Crocheters" about the difference in US vs UK terms.

#1 border starts on p.28; #150 border ends on p.303.
"Crochet Punctuation" is p. 304-305.

Great book of crochet edgings, with many different styles to choose from based on your taste and the style of your project. Some of them are a tad crazy, but I guess those appeal to some people!

There is a section at the front that explains the math of determining how many stitches you need for an edging to work with your project and how to fix this problem if you don't have the right number. I must admit I suck at math and this was a bit confusing for me, but after a few rereads even I figured it out! Which means you can too ;)

I find with some of the edgings, the author used some very ugly colour combinations. The point is too see the different rows more clearly, which is essential, but you also need to be able to look past the colors at the pattern itself. The one I used most recently was HIDEOUS in the book (in my initial opinion), but absolutely stunning in real life when done in colors that actually go together.

My only other complaint is the way the book was bound (and the main reason I'm giving this 4 stars). The book is nice and compact, which is great for traveling as I so often do with my crochet, but it will not stay open on its own. I either have to photocopy the pages I want, or hold the book open with something. The latter is really annoying or even impossible if you're traveling! Spiral binding probably would have been more practical.

I had originally borrowed this book from the library and once I went through the different patterns, I realized that I NEEDED this book! It is perfect to finish off any piece (crochet, knit or fabric) with a variety of options based on how many stitches across you are working with. This would be the best book to bless the crocheter in your life with, or treat yourself to an excellent addition to your library.

This book has an excellent layout, graphs,instructions,and photos. It will inspire me to personalize my work. It has really clear directions for novices. My only issue is with the binding. The book will not lay flat and will close itself if you are following a pattern near the ends, making it harder to work from. You would have to make a copy of the page.

Wonderful collection of ideas and interesting edges. Very nice presentation with interactive elements.
The patterns are well presented with clear instructions, photos, charts, bookmarks, ability to make one's own notes, to download a dictionary and links to Wikipedia, to share on Facebook/Twitter.
Very pleased.
