Review by r0ckcandy
A good book for someone beginning crochet or someone a little bit advanced. Check the errata before starting any projects. It's riddled with mistakes.
Review by Greenberry
I've made quite a few pieces from this book and really enjoy the sassy attitude of the author and the fun designs.
Review by laurazlsk
It was my first book. There is lots of information -- great to learn from with soooooo many patterns to choose from. I did find a few of the instructions hard to understand as a beginner but looking up the how to on youtube helped plenty. I found the Crochet Answer Book was far more helpful --- easier to understand with a lot less content to teach the same thing. Since it is a learning book, more advanced crochet techniques would have been a real nice addition.

This book is a book I recommend to almost anyone who's learning to crochet or wants to have a better understanding of the craft. It breaks down how to crochet in a clear and humorous way. There are great patterns in the book also.

This is a how to crochet book I'd give any beginner, intermediate, or even advanced crochet artist for a gift on any occasion. Debbie Stoller makes learning to crochet fun and funny. The entire book is full of illustrations and photos for the tutorials and patterns, accompanied by tongue N cheek humor with a slightly provocative flavor in directions for the tutorials, tips, techniques, etc. The title Happy Hooker gives one the idea of the type of humor inside the book. This is a must-have for any library of a crochet artist or prospective crocheter.
