The Smart Approach to Small-Space Living

The Smart Approach to Small-Space Living - Susan Boyle Hillstrom I'd have to say there's the usual trite textual filler that occupies most of such books; Self-important sentences which whisper in preachy tones about balance, proportion, schemes, and other almost religious words which lead one to believe (they hope) that there's far more going on here than what meets and greets your eyes. There isn't. There's taste, and lack thereof. That said, it's not a terrible book, and the pictures are decent. You WILL find a few ideas worth consideration, but sadly not enough for me to say I liked the book; It was ok. If you're really looking for ideas on how to deal with intensely small spaces, you will be very disappointed, as pretty much all of the spaces here are fairly standard to large. There are other books better suited to the subject matter. Move along.
