If you are interested in O-Scale layouts from 4'x8' small and simple to large and complex (12' x 32'), this book is a great small compendium both of interesting designs and tips for successful layout construction. It is well illustrated and very practical.
But, buyer beware... there are curious errors... I did a detailed study of John Long's 'Tinplate Central' layout included. The article claims that the layout is an O-32 layout and lists O-32 track segments required. But the layout is clearly an O-27 layout and a careful look at the measurements on the layout page show curve radii of 13.5 inches. That major error slipped by the editors both of the original article as well as the reviewers of the articles chosen to be included in the book.
