I think I've probably reached the level of intermediate tangler now. I've read about 30 books and frequent many zentangle blogs. I've designed three of my own tangles and I make zentangle cards for friends and family who enjoy them. I'm kind of picky about which tangles I consider worth publishing and most of the ones in this book were really ugly with the exception of two. There are only 12 included. The Zentangle community are quick to invent new tangles so they can copyright them which I think is silly and that makes them release books with their new tangles, most of them not worth reading. So this book has 12 tangles: (1) cabin floor, (2) five oh, (3) starfish, (4) echo, (5) bronx cheer, (6) cheers, (7) mooka, (8) facets, (9) honeycomb, (10) frippery, (11) tripoli, and (12) betweed. I liked cabin floor and five oh. Mooka and cabin floor are in many books; nothing new there. The others I haven't seen before but they were ugly. Most of the book is a collection of artwork from various artists using zentangles. There's a two page tutorial on using Photoshop to make a colored zentangle from one drawn in black on white paper. Simply create two layers, the black and white zentangle on top and the colored paper/pattern on the bottom then select layer blending-->darken. Voila, you have a colorized zentangle that you can crop to size. On p. 108 there is a beautiful zendala. So four pages are worth reading and the rest is not, IMO.

I was a little disappointed in this book. It didn't go beyond what I have found on the internet.

For a novice Zentangler who's just discovered this wonderful art form, this book is an excellent resource and teaching aid: lots of beautiful examples to encourage and inspire!
