You can actually see the whole book for free on Andrea Stern's website but considering there's a plentiful supply of cheap copies on Amazon you might be tempted to buy one anyway. There are a few reasons why they are so readily available at low cost...

As a culmination of fifteen years work bearing some sort of witness to the comings and goings of her extended family Stern has come up with perhaps only half a dozen truly wonderful shots and the rest are fairly inconsequential. Those successful shots though are seriously good and worth having to refer to.

There is a lot to be admired about the idea of coolly documenting one's loved ones and she does at least reveal absurdities, find pathos and explore surfaces quite well. Perhaps inevitably it's mostly fairly lightweight and only the occasional image cuts more deeply. Anyone in her position would understandably be loathe to say much any consequence that would threaten the family's social standing. Which is why - to respond to Simon Doonan's afterword questioning why the photographic community 'has always delighted in images of the under-privileged and needy in all their guts and glory' rather than bothering with the rich - well the families of the have-nots documented by Nick Waplington and Richard Billingham have little or nothing left to lose. Avoiding social shame is not so high on their agenda. Therefore, unfortunately, many areas of family life are off-limits in Inheritance and it's mostly a catalogue of social events where smartly dressed people are sometimes a little less guarded but otherwise everyone rubs along just fine.
