I am always humbled by the lovely letters I receive from folks.  
I wanted to share some with you.

I absolutely love your book. The research, writing, the pictures, all of it is the ticket that I looked for over the last 25 years (or maybe more)!  Thank You again, ~Linda


This definitely is the most comprehensive book on Tunisian/ Afghan stitch I have ever seen... great illustrations & written instructions ...even the novice can follow this... ~Judy

All I can say is WOWOWOWOW!  Without a doubt, it is the most comprehensive book I've ever seen on Tunisian Crochet.  It's excellent quality, well worth the asking price, and very easy to understand. ~Barb

I think it is WONDERFUL.  I have looked everywhere for books explaining more stitches, and yours is the only one I've found.  The explanations and pictures are great, and make the stitches really easy to understand.  ~Meghan

I'm already absolutely in love with it! I honestly never knew that there is so much that can be done with Tunisian Crochet.  ~Debra

I'd recommend the Encyclopedia of Tunisian Crochet.  The detailed photos of where to insert the hook are extremely clear.  Definitely worth the cost.~ Jane

WONDERFUL, worth every penny, not one single regret about spending the money...  suggestions, solutions, ideas, tips, and a stitch guide, I would very highly recommend this resource  no matter your experience level or how long you have been crocheting in any form.~ Midds
