Fair Isle Knitting Book

Any body own this book?

I've heard from one blogger who says it's worth the price, anywhere from $150 as it is our of print. I love this kind of knitting and was wondering what the rest of the knitting bloggers had to say about it. Here's the blurb on the book:

In over 200 pages and with more than 250 step-by-step photographs, drawings and charts, Alice Starmore provides a complete workshop in the art of Fair Isle knitting.
Starmore teaches traditional Fair Isle techiques of circular knitting, how to work with classic pattern motifs and color schemes and how to create original patterns and designs.
Starmore shares complete instructions and easy-to-read charted patterns for 14 of her own designs for cardigans, vests, ganseys, tammies, gloves and mittens.
