I LOVE it! I have been going Tunisian crazy. I have made a ton of scarves with it. I am not usually a crocheted scarf fan, especially when they are worked in short rows. My favorite scarf pattern is the Tunisian Ripple Scarf by Elisa Purnell. I did one scarf half width and another just a qtr of the width with chunkier yarn. The repeat is easy to memorize and simple, even for beginners. The thinner scarf I did on a regular crochet hook.

Some other things I have picked up that I would highly suggest are:
|I picked up my first Tunisian (or afghan) hook at Walmart for $2.49. I wanted some different sizes so I got this set from Amazon, but it is available several places. I like that is has larger hooks.|
|This is a great book, full of TONS of different stitches. Easy to follow.|
