The book is well photographed, and my main purpose for keeping it is idea stimulation and to remind myself "how" certain elements look and work together (bad & good).....but, this is not an "in-depth" work on complex assemblage and design.....it's a very basic, "beginner" type of book.....it's nice, but not a real essential "must have" for one's library.
