Great for getting ideas about what to build, less so for actual building
To be clear, the bulk of this book consists of sketches of different deck designs - not detailed plans. You can purchase more detailed plans of any of these decks, but they aren't included with the book. Nor is there much detail about designing your own deck. This wasn't 100% clear to me from the description.
That said, even if you don't have any intention of buying the plans, and are just looking for "food for though" as you design your own deck, you are almost certain to find something in here that will be helpful. The prices for the formal blueprints are a bargain, compared to the cost of hiring an engineering firm to draw and certify them, if you aren't up to the task yourself. However, if you're looking for something with more of a design-it-yourself focus, there are other, better books out there.
