This is a great book! I am a little more than halfway through and so far the diagrams are very clear. What really pleases me about it is that even the (seemingly) simpler models that take a smaller number of steps to fold incorporate some really interesting ideas and folding sequences/maneuvers. This is especially nice when time for folding is limited and I still want to fold something that is going to challenge me in some way.I also love the fact that for each model, the book provides pretty much all the meta information you could ask for: crease pattern; recommended type, size, and color of paper; recommended folding technique (dry vs wet folding); estimated level of difficulty; ratio (size of finished model as a percentage of paper size); color photo of finished model. In terms of things I have learned from folding the models in this book, there are two folding maneuvers this book really helped me practise: "pull out some trapped paper" and "wrap around a layer of paper". I used to dread these! :) --- Summing up, I highly recommend this book to anyone who is not a total beginner! And if you are planning on getting the print version of this book and can afford it, do spend the extra money (~1.50 euros) for the PDF version: If you really do get stuck at some point, being able to zoom in (and out) can help sometimes.
