I own this book, and I wish that I had spent my money on something more substantial. The good points- these are beautiful, expensive homes and the photography is excellent. The houses are so exciting that I would have loved information from the builder describing their building issues. Frankly each house had less useful description than a real estate listing would have provided. There isn't a particle of useful information. There are 8-9 pages briefly describe the benefits of building with concrete. These pages are mostly pictures and are sales pitches, not informative.
