This book was a big disappointment. First of all, it is basically a tribute to landscape designer Michael Glassman and only shows his work. Too bad it wasn't titled as such. The writer clearly admires him to the point where the constant praise got on my nerves. The photography doesn't pop like it does for the best books of this genre. While there are plenty of nice designs, other books do this much better.
Outdated and pretty standard.
