I was curious about the book and had hoped it would be something my newly knitting daughter might enjoy. The book, however, is well beyond beginner ability--nowhere close to "drop-dead easy!"
The term the authors considered "easy" would more accurately be described as projects with a fair amount of mindless steps in which the knitter is almost on auto-pilot. So projects for the ambitious knitter who doesn't want to think too much about every step of the process. Just wish either the title were more explanatory or listed a suggested skill level so as not to frustrate beginner knitters.
So if you are an experienced knitter, have at this book--I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. And if you are just starting out, I'd pick something with more explanatory notes and more step-by-step instructions.
