This is a nice book showing a vaiety of buildings using old shipping containers.

I'm a little bit disappointed in the presentation. Some of the photos are clearly out of focus, making it a little bit annoying to flip from page to page seeing various quality photos. I've no idea why the photos were not re-taken in focus. It makes the book feel a bit amateur in parts.

Also. The text is split into two separate blocks, one in English and the other in Spanish. This in itself is not a problem. Actually I can speak spanish so it's no big deal at all. But what is odd is that the English text seems to have been put through a Spanish-English online translator, or has been written by someone whose language is not English. There are some quite odd turns of phrase that would never get past an English-speaking editor. At the end of the day I really bought the book for the photos rather than the text so it's no big deal. But combined with some less than ideal photos it does make the book feel a little bit sloppy.

Having said that: If you want some inspiring photos to look at from the container world, you will enjoy this book. It's paperback, a nice size and fairly interesting. It just could have done with a little bit better editing.

Book is better than many others on the same subject. Due to the honesty of this book I am seeing cracks in the myth growing around container buildings.I live in the US and her Majesty's Postal Service outdid itself.

This book was recommended by the Adaptainer blog. While the book is not a complete how to manual it does contain lots of useful information especially about the eco aspects of building with shipping containers.
