I would HIGHLY recommend the book to someone who is thinking about getting into pyrography or someone who has recently gotten into pyrography. The book covers a LOT of basic information that touches on everything to get started in pyrography. Lora's pyrography exercises and techniques are easy to understand and she provides a lot of examples to help you master the art form. I think the book is well worth the price and I wish this book had existed when I started in pyrography.
