    I didn't find this book helpful. There's no sense of a real person talking to you, and the information is technical with no extra tips. There's a bit of general stuff about fitting and shape at the beginning, and then the patterns. The patterns do all have excellent schematics, but don't seem to illustrate the theme of how to fit knits. They are just patterns. I would have liked fewer patterns with comments boxes telling you how the gauge or stitch pattern affected fit, how to customise patterns I didn't find this book helpful.

I would have liked fewer patterns with comments boxes telling you how the gauge or stitch pattern affected fit, how to customise patterns for your shape and extra help with fitting: STOP and measure here points for example. I looked on Ravelry, and couldn't see that people had managed to turn put beautiful fitted versions of the patterns - quite the opposite in fact. Very disappointing. I found Amy Herzog's book much more helpful. The patterns were more classic as well.
