Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The content is suited to those interested in architecture, not those intent on earth building.
Even the pictures mostly show larger elements of the building rather than details though some of the details are very interesting.
An architect probably would really like this book, but if you want to get rour hands dirty, do yourself a big favor and get "Earthbag Building: The Tools, Tricks and Techniques (Natural Building Series)"
