Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars 47 projects profusely illustrated 1 Aug 2012
By Eugene Tenenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
ISBN 8425216001: Each of 47 projects is depicted in beautiful color pictures, often small plans, sections, elevations, and sometimes pen sketches, a site plan, or 3D axonometric diagrams, and described by a half-page long text in English. All is very well published, printed on semi-glossy paper, and soft-bound. Exceptional.
