5.0 out of 5 stars Good overall book 20 Feb 2006

I think this book was very good at touching on all the different aspects of interior design. At times it could get a bit technical and if thats not what you want then those parts can be skipped over without loosing the meaning of the section. I enjoyed the book and recomend it for interior design and architecture students.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Bargin 25 Feb 2006
By J. M. Dixon - Published on Amazon.com
I was introduced to Amazon.com by one of my classmates. I hadn't purchased the textbook for class because it costed about $100 at the school's bookstore. Amazon sold the book I need for $69 and I've been hooked on Amazon since then. My classmate also told me about selling old college books on Amazon and getting more money back then the college bookstore would give. I registered with Amazon to sell books almost a month and have sold three old college books that I've held for more than a year. Amazon's awesome, I tell everyone about it because I'm a single mother and getting these kind of bargins really helps out in my household.
