I do like some of the furniture concepts, but I think the book is too technical for the non-professional woodworker. Some of the technique diagrams, pictures, and written directions are confusing to follow if you have never done them before. None of the designs are day or weekend projects.
I likewise felt that there were a lot of ways to achieve the furniture looks and concepts without having to use a lot of the skills and techniques the book recommends. A lot of the techniques require some specialty and high end tools that I most hobbyists won't have access to like biscuit joiners and high end dado jigs. In other words, a lot of these designs are over-engineered in my opinion.
If you want to get into high end furniture making, then you might consider buying this book. Certainly the plans and ideas are professional grade furniture. I think if you are a beginner, this book is probably not that helpful to you.
I will get it done correctly, but the book could have been more helpful.
