I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  The instructions and ways to create are endless with this book because it gives you the tools to learn new or better techniques.  I know depending on skill level the reader may already know some of the teachings, but no matter where you are at in the learning process this book can still be super helpful and can also be used as a refresher.  I like the basic and more easy way to learn and the option to to each section at your own pace.
