Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

It's great to see a new book from Peter Engel, author of inspirational Origami from Angelfish to Zen. This book is very different in concept, though, and focuses on folds that are more approachable and less complex than it's older sibling. The overall design quality of the book is very high, with excellent color photographs throughout.

The title, however, is somewhat misleading, as the models in the book hardly qualify to be "10-folds". I even feel that this 10-step restriction got in the way of the clarity of the diagrams, which break into "sub-steps" or cram several folds into one step to keep the step-count below ten. For this reason I believe some models may be quite confusing to new folders, which is a shame because the models in this book are pretty good! Some fun themes like food items and a goose that lays golden eggs, solid animals design, and a great chick-in-an-egg make this book essential for the enthusiast.
