The only good content is the occasional biography of current designers, and these are few and far between. The books places emphasis on upcoming "third generation" designers, but really fails to discuss where they will come from or what is in store for American design.
I felt like the editors just wanted to put together a fantasy catalog of items they would like to have in their homes, and the book lacks an altogether purpose.
And to top it all off, the design and layout is sub-standard for such a remarkable subject. I don't recommed it to anyone.
