Great book. You would like it if you are interested in being creative, The book shows how to use a few patterns in many different styles.

Interesting adaptations of the five basic patterns provided, along with photos of various clever variations. I confess, I'm not actually a sewer, but if I were, I suspect that this book would be pretty inspiring.

My primary beef with Burda is their politically incorrect reluctance to provide patterns suitable for the curvier women amongst us.
