It's an ok book, would be nice to have more pictures/illustrations. It does tell you what you need to know. If you want illustrations then this is not the book you want.

Great if you know absolutely nothing about straw bale, and don't want to 8 Feb 2008
By B. Barbier - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a contractor and have been involved in a couple straw bale projects. I found this book to be fairly useless in my continuing education. I also found some of the author's unique ideas to be a bit suspect--I would refer anyone looking for better building techniues to check out Bruce King's books. I won't even sell this book to the used book store, I'd hate to be a part of misleading anyone. Conclusion: Not Practical Straw Bale Building.

A most insightful read and a book I will most certainly refer to again. Practical, creative and instructive, five stars.
