I wasn't sure what to expect when I peeked at this book, but it was not motivation. The artwork, pictures, and quotes throughout it really made my creative juices stir. I love the details of this book, that you find one every page. It is very much a book that you can read over and over again and find new little nuggets of inspiration. The first chapter gave me a glimpse of what I can do, even as a novice like myself.
Oliver keeps it brief, but detailed giving you the information you need to get started. Never once does she give you the right way to do things but allows you to do things your way. She stresses multiple times the importance of using your tools you know, and explains that there is no right or wrong way.
