I resisted buying this book at first. I am a cheapskate and can't stand buying patterns/books if I can get it online for free
BUT... this is hands down the best sock book/pattern I have ever seen. It gives you so many options, 4/5 dpns, 2 circs, toe up, top down, patterns, heels, and she explains everything to a "t". If I had never done a sock before, I probably could have done one with the help of this book alone. (I wasn't a member here, bcs then of course I would have done Silver's Sock Tutorial! ) You should buy it when you have the $!
