For the price this is a truly bargain set of books.
The books are themselves impressive in that they are large hard cover volumes in a box set (coffee table perfect).
However it will depend on what you are looking for whether the content is any use to you. To me practically all the houses in the volumes hark back to and age (possibly 60'-70's) when contemporary meant 'ugly' and 'industrial'. Its a matter of taste of course but with the contemporary buildings around now showing sleek lines and huge efforts made in aesthetics, this book disappoints. Corrugated steel roofs, block reinforced concrete, the cover picture on the book shown is for me as good as it gets.
