This book starts off well. The first three chapters are interesting and give a histroical view of development around Dublin. Thereafter each chapter provides a run down of the larger developments built by the major players. This proves to be a boring and pointless task. The reader is non the wiser what has driven the developers to continue to purchase land and progress developments after the markets looked to be turning.
The final chapter "Bust" (added on reprint) is particularly disapointing. No updates are given on status on the developers or their investments and the explaination given for the downturn is brief and from a global prospective. No illistration as to why Ireland has been greater effected than others is given.....that said this chapter may have been written before the full details of Anglo, AIB et al were known!
