Everything others have said. The not so small house is very expensive and does not reflect the needs of either a small family or people with limited budgets. Also, IMO, an American not so big house is still too big. This not so small house is for those who've made a lot of money on their real big house and want something that reflects the same aesthetic values of their former huge home but in a slightly smaller format. It's an interesting book to garner some ideas but impractical for the average consumer. As far as I'm concerned this is a fairly typical moneyed-American view of what a home is. The only justification for the small in the title is that American homes are so overly-large.
