INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions for various wing constructions are pretty thoroughly laid out in numbered steps, with illustrations in the margins to help the crafter.

SUMMARY- This was a fun book to pick up and made me interested in the rest of Ms. Robertson's work. Self-published can run the gamut in quality, but I was happy with this purchase and now looking for more.
