If you are serious about getting a modular home, this is indispensable reading. I took over 20 pages of notes to direct our due diligence on suppliers and installers, our choices of options and our critical path planning. Gianino was an academic before he became a modular home installer, it shows in the thoroughness and clarity of this book.
I cannot agree with other posted criticisms that the book reads like a collection of brochures promoting the concept. It is an extremely valuable handbook that has given me great confidence in going forward.
His explanations of how things are supposed to happen are tempered by a very humane understanding of how things can go wrong and how to make adjustments fairly between the buyer, the builder and the installer.
I only wish I could buy from his business, but they do not install where I live.
