This book is very good for beginners.
The diagrams are very clear and carefully drawn, showing in many places the actual position of the hands while folding. In the beginning of each chapter, a new base is taught, and several models which employ this base. Most of the models are known, traditional ones, but there are also modern designs included.
There is an excellent variety of subjects, which introduces the various styles of origami to beginners, and helps them choose their path in the art.
