"The simple placement of one object next to another takes on a deeper meaning in this thoughtful book. The author sees the display of 3-dimentional objects as having three essential components: Physicality, Abstraction and Integration. It sounds heavy, but the writing style is easy to follow. If you want to see where an original thinker can go with aesthetics and design, pick up this inspirational book." Country Almanac, Summer 2004 Issue

This is not a how-to book and the value of the book doesn't pretend to be its writing style. This is a resource that you pick up, skim to something interesting, and suddenly uncover something that you hadn't thought of before.
I love and recommend this book but only for a small subset of people. If you don't already have a bookshelf filled with design resources and evaluate design on a regular basis, then this probably isn't the book for you.
I really did like "The Wabi Sabi House". It is a better investment.
