I can't say I agree with some of the selections, but it still offers some inspiring house designs and pretty pictures presented with quality. I liked how it included a house plan for all the houses. However, I found the text to be very brief and lacking in detail, and there were too many photos for some boring houses, whilst too few for some more interesting designs.
If you're looking for a bunch of pictures of good contemporary house designs, this book is for you.
If you are after a book containing more than just a brief (paragraph-long) description of houses, then this isn't for you.
