Customer Reviews

The worst book I have ever purchased.
Leon Altuna
There are really only 20 pages in this "book." The rest of the pages are blank for notes or a sales page for the authors other books.
Justin Criner
Narrow in focus - no "great ideas" presented - the author doesn't even deal with the exposed plywood edges.

I wish I had read the poor reviews before I was duped into a "secret book."

The secret of this book is where are the other pages. There are really only 20 pages in this "book." The rest of the pages are blank for notes or a sales page for the authors other books.

Most of the pictures are so dark you can't see them well. In my copy they are almost black.

There are no color pictures in the book! Only black and white, don't let the cover fool you like it did me.

Furthermore the bookcase door is only held up by 4 hinges. A bookcase full of books would be quite heavy and this does not really talk about bracing the door to support all that weight.

I was looking forward to this book so much and was even telling some friends about it. Big disappointment. Perhaps the author will come out with a 30 page book next time.

This "book" is terrible. When I ordered it there was a three star rating, I am not sure now that is possible. Lots of books have low ratings, so I ordered it, books seem to bring out purchasers real opinions and low ratings. This is a one star book. It is a fraud. This item has no actual value.

The carpentry that the book recommends is unworthy of putting down in a book of any kind. The directions are vague, incorrect, and the end result will not provide a bookshelf, never mind one that could be considered a door. It is not strong enough, and does not work. There is absolutely not one mention of hardware or latching mechanisms. The are spelling and grammar mistakes.

This is a pamphlet for a website that is terrible as well.

I purchased this from amazon.com, and they should not be selling it. They say it has 24 pages, not true, it has about 10. The last eight (8!) pages are blank. I feel ripped off and lied to.

Hi Great idea but bad execution. The cut list is wrong, some of the sizes are incorrect - wasted wood. I finally put it together and works great.

This book has a very detailed plan for a single style of door and two pictures of a smaller style door without any details. It is great if you want to copy exactly what the author did, but very skimpy on details if you need/want to modify the design. Maybe on the next version the author could include other variations of the design or the math formulas so someone can more easily adjust the dimensions.

This book(?) is poorly written, the pictures are the worst I've seen. An entry level carpenter could build something better than this, in fact, you don't really need any skills at all. The was a total waste of money and not worth reading. I looked at it once and then threw it in the trash.

I needed plans to build a secret bookcase that swing out, not in. These plans are limited in design and better plans could be found on the internet for free.

An okay guide, not the best I've seen...even contained some mis-spelled words. I don't know if I could build a bookcase door with just this guide, but maybe someone with more knowledge may be able to.
