On one hand the author shares insights that might not occur to you about style, layout, traffic flow, sightlines, lighting, railings, etc., the nuances of materials (”the warmth of wood, the self-assurance of metal”), and what’s working about the decks in the ton of beautiful photos that show the range of possibilities.
On the other hand his one-page comparisons of decking materials, doors, furniture, etc. help you quickly rule stuff in or out.
All together the book was very helpful in envisioning and moving forward on a deck that will be much better for having read it.
