A "must have" no nonsense title., November 9, 2000
Reviewer: Andrea Campbell from Hot Springs Village, AR USA
Mr. Lewin has the right idea: inform the public about how to make better choices, and you have a reader who will pass on the word.

While this book does not possess the "glitz" of most of the books of decorating ilk, this slim, informative volume is reasonably priced, and completely accessible to readers who love furniture, no matter how furniture savvy or not.

Superb guide covering raw materials through retailers, October 25, 1999
Reviewer: Patrick M Hauck ( from Doylestown, PA
Mr. Lewin's guide was the most complete source I could find covering everything from different types of raw materials used in making furniture to how to buy from retailers. He has amassed a wealth of knowledge in his 36 years in the business and shares the information in an enjoyable manner. He covers topics such as veneering and leather quality with such finesse that the average person comes away feeling like an expert. The book was indispensable in helping me deal with retailers by giving me the confidence and power to sift through superfluous information and get to the essential facts. Mr. Lewin was even so kind as to return my phone call to answer a question I had about a certain manufacturer.

I believe this book would be of great value to anyone interested in the construction and purchase of fine quality furniture.

Very helpful, delightful read, a must 4 getting a good buy, August 19, 1999
Reviewer: from Detroit, Michigan
I was well equipped to shop for furniture after reading Mr. Lewin's informative book. I took the book shopping with me and the sight of it alone made salespeople wary! (Kind of evened the playing field!) A delightfully written, very helpful text for old and new shoppers alike.

Great book... It gives you the power to make a smart choice., May 18, 1999
Reviewer: Steve Miano from USA
This is a book everyone should read. It gives you a detailed description of what you should look for and whether you are getting your $$'s worth. A true comprehensive guide....

A strong basic guide to intellegant furniture buying, December 1, 1998
Reviewer: from Jackson, CA
This book describes what you need to know about furniture in a simple, yet educated, approach with just enough humor to keep the reader interested in what could be a tenuous subject. The author obviously has the background to cover the subject in a thorough yet not too textbookish style.
