"trade secrets" is a bit of an overstatement. That being said, the tidbits it does offer are pretty good. It seems to like sergers as much as traditional sewing machines (not great for folks like me who only have a sewing machine.) The latter half of the book is heavy into beading and embroidery and other kind of embellishment type things; not my cup of tea. Definitely didn't feel like *200* tips (but they numbered them, so you know there are 200.)

All sorts of useful techniques as well as basic information. Great for beginners and intermediate sewers, and even I found a couple of techniques better explained than I had found so far. (That means I will finally be able to try them out.)
