Jennifer Richardson's awesome thread, Jen learns to spin, includes a lot of discussion of this book, so I thought it deserved a thread of it's own in the book forum.

I love this book. I learned to spin from this book. This book changed my life. I may not agree with every little thing the author says, but I adore the overly opinionated way he says it. If he was my age and could play the hurdy gurdy, I would probably marry him.

Next bad weather day, I'll see what I can do with a review.
