Book reads more like a textbook and is a compilation of studies that have been done regarding people and their houses. I had a hard time getting into it but when I did it was really interesting. Chapters broken down into rooms...entry, bedroom, LR,DR, etc. Author did a good job of bringing all of the information together in a readable way. Index at the back if you want to see the study in more detail. My biggest complaint would be that she is talking about various mansions, or houses but there is not a single picture in the book. She does however, place the website you can visit in the index.
