I've read a lot about this book and almost bought it yesterday. However, when I picked it up and started the read it I was so disappointed. While the tips are good the print size is so small that it is difficult to read without straining and I have good eyesight. That is not the only issue, unfortunately, the type font is very light with faint light colors on white paper. I understand that the author might have wanted a book that's easily portable, which it is, but what's the point of that if people can't read it. Too bad that such a sacrifice was made. You have lost more than one buyer as it would have been a perfect gift for aspiring sewists such as my younger sisters and friends.
