That's a fair & reasonable review. As a counterpoint, I will mention that I found the book (and it's two companions from the original release) to have a rather low information density - the ample white space on every page is stylish, but I found myself wishing they had filled it with sidebars or expanded photo captions. I also felt that it was far from a "complete" coverage of all possibilities in furniture & cabinet construction so the title is a bit optimistic (it's possible that when the entire series is done it will be a "complete" guide, albeit with a great deal of redundancy between the volumes).

Can't agree more! Was rather underwhelmed by the set. Don't know where they are now nor do I care. Lesson learned.
