This book if full of profiles, home pictures, tales and reviews of each of the designers and their most famous rooms. It's a fun look inside their lives and recommendations. It's a marketing person's dream :) It's fluff --- but in a good way. It's a great soft sided book that takes your mind off more serious topics of the day.
My favorite spotlights are Hildi (it really shows her softer and sweeter side) and my all time fav. groovy girl Genevieve. She's such a wonderful free spirit. BUT - without a doubt, my crush on Vern's talent is even greater after reading about him in this book.
"Trading Spaces - Behind The Scenes" is just a great pick me up and I enjoyed every minute of it!
Also, the look of this "book" is somewhat disappointing: it's more of a bound magazine. The layout is what I would call "retro 60s" and the flow is kind of rough on the eyes.
I wouldn't dismiss this book entirely, tho. For what it is (OK, so it isn't the book we all expected!), it is interesting and readable. They promise 2 more books come August, more along the line of the show. Let's hope these forthcoming books are more promising.

This book is primarily a tell-all about the designers and the hostess of the show Trading Spaces. While the book has a few tips and tricks, it is not about learning skills. Read morePublished on December 30, 2003 by Amazon Customer
This isn't supposed to be a "how to" book. It's called "Behind the Scenes" for a reason. Read morePublished on November 24, 2003
With big two page pictures and a little writting this is more of a fun book. It get's old pretty fast. Plus points off for the two page spread of Hilldie.Published on October 30, 2003 by chicoer2003
