I picked the book up on a clearance rack for $2, but, after viewing it, I think it's worth the full price. I can't tell you the memories this thing brought back. This is a killer present for your Baby Boomer friends who were TV addicts as tykes.
For example, consider the floor plan of Jed Clampett's Beverley Hills mansion. According to Mr. Bennett's drawing, the scale is 1/8" = 1'0". If you measure the width of the mansion in the floor plan as printed in the book, it's 4 and 1/2 inches, implying that the width of the building is 36 feet. That's impossible -- it's a huge mansion.
If Mr. Bennett ever puts out a second edition, the publisher should fix this flaw.
This book is not all that accurate, as other reviewers have stated, but if you're a fan and want a general idea of what the TV homes looked like, and want a few ideas for your own house-building project, this book isn't a bad start. And hey, it's FUN!
Still, a revised edition with better measurements and so on would be much better.
I've had this book for years and still flip through it when I catch a rerun on TV Land - I never get tired of looking around the Brady's house!
Be sure to check the table of contents (use Amazon's "search inside" feature) to make sure the shows you love are covered. These are mostly old shows, many b&w. I hope the author will consider a sequel covering some of the more modern shows with intriguing sets!

This book needs a flat spine! The blueprints are 2 pages & because of the binding, you lose ALOT of the image dead center. If I could rate it a negative 5 stars, I would. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jae Halam
