Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Not sure who the audience target is for this book. For consumers this is book is not particularly photogenic or illustrative in ways that would allow you to brainstorm around creative ideas... I think sites like apartementtherapy or tumblr photoblogs might be better even if they don't focus exclusively on work-at-home scenarios. Ultimately it really falls flat on inspiration in a visual sense which is what I think most casual users would anticipate from a book like this. Perhaps it's a little more oriented to architects or interior designers, but even then I would say it's marginally more useful. Be sure to tak ea look before purchasing to ensure you know what you're getting.

I think this book is intended for planners, architects, and developers. It describes how to work within existing building codes to create a basic shell of hybrid spaces that allows artists and other creative entrepreneurs to define how they live and work. All the pictures you see in magazines are great....but half of them would be illegal if you went to try to build them now. Typically, "codes" and "design" are pretty far apart. This book explains how to bring them together.
