The book offers written instructions, not always the easiest for beginners to follow along. They also offer up some alternative uses for beads, like bookmarks and scrapbooking.
My only complaint is that you have to hunt for the project resources, which is spread throughout the magazine. It would have been nice if they were listed on the same page as the project.
Overall, it's worth checking out. It's 162 pages of mouth-watering jewelry designs.
