The book is nice written, pictures and annotations are just perfect. However, this book depicts ideal conditions for laying a patio. Those conditions are hardly ever exist in real life so the book teaches an abstract perfect theory that can't be really applied in real life situation. Every example shown is perfectly leveled, isolated surface just like it was purposely prepared for the photo shooting. What happens with the adjacent land? How you should deal with slopped surface? what if there is a asphalt driveway adjoins to the patio stone? How do you deal with drainage? I would like to see some more challenging installations. Overall, book gives you good general understating but no reality

I've used this book to help build a concrete patio and found it to be a great resource.

The good:
There are a lot of real world examples that could potentially save a homeowner lots of money instead of hiring a contractor.
The Kindle version has great step by step short detailed instructions along with pictures that accurately represent that step.
I found it best to read through the chapter before starting the project and then use the Kindle app on my Apple IOS while during my project if I got stuck.
Each chapter lists the tools and materials for a project that are accurate and easily understood

The cons:
This is a really good resource and I wouldn't say it needs much more to make it better.
More pictures would be nice
Less details and quicker step by step descriptions might make it a quicker to get underway.

I'd highly recommend this book for anyone who owns a home and likes to work on these types of projects. The book gives great pointers that you could only get by working in the field.

My husband asked for this book as part of a larger gift for Father's Day. It was even better than I thought! The pictures are wonderful. They offer a lot of ideas for inspiration. The book also gives step-by-step instructions for each project. This book is the best of both worlds!

Shows in great detail, photos and text on how to install and create patios and walks. Doesn't go into the plantings as much as I hoped for, but great ideas for hard scaping a yard.
