I found the book very good reading. It was very detailed with great pictures of each house described with full details of visiting opportunities. It's truly a directory, but could be enjoyed as a smaller coffee table book.I'd recommend it to anyone interested in the Hudson River area houses but it's great for a study in historical architecture as well.
