There are three chapters, each featuring a different variation. First, double diamond RAW starts with a base of RAW but adds a second pass of beads, one in each "corner". Second, faux RAW, which is also known as "modified RAW". You add a bead between each RAW unit so that you don't have to switch directions in stitching. And third, layered RAW, which produces double sided ropes with the heft of cubic RAW, but more flexibility. Other stitches are included in the book (herringbone, peyote, and St Petersburg chain), but these take a back seat.
The illustrations and directions are excellent, and basics are included in the front to refresh you on the basic stitches before you take off with the variations. One of the most exciting things to me is that this book presents so many new bezeling possibilities.
