Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While there are some organizational changes in this fourth edition, much of the content, including photographs and text, has not been updated since the previous, 2005 edition. The new collection of professional deck plans is from Steve Cory's Deck Designs, so if you already have that book, you can skip this one. Conditionally recommended.
