At first I was too busy looking at the terrific photos, but then I settled down and read it cover to cover, and found it well worth my time. It's lavishly illustrated, but, as another reviewer mentioned, it is not a reference work. Instead, it's mainly a historical analysis of the political, economic, and social reasons for the triumph of Colonial Revival architecture. It covers many areas of interest outside the scope of a reference work. Colonial Revival interiors receive plenty of attention, which I appreciated.
The book focuses on the grandest expressions of Colonial Revival; there are no Sears 1910 homes, only custom built beauties. I would have enjoyed a survey of the lower-end expressions of the style up to the present day, but that would be another book.
