"This book is well put together and I rather love it. I've only made one item from it so far and thats the last one, the star. Its a complicated little model from the looks of it, I was surprised it was only 1 piece of paper rather then many."
"Excellent book - great models; challenging, but doable (at least the first part, haven't tried the most advanced ones yet ;-)"
