I guess what disappointed me most about this book (besides the size, which I expected) is that I've seen the interiors in other books before. Discovering that, I thought a) I have better, more detailed books with the same photographs and b) Taschen is usually better than this. The book has almost no descriptions and relies on tiny print in the back saying things like "detail of_______'s interior." At least in other books, their descriptions tell you about the objects- how they were acquired, etc- not just describing the obvious. All in all, yes, the pictures are nice but it's not a necessity for my library.
