    I was a little disappointed with this book. Was hoping to see great pics of beautiful layouts and design ideas- not the case, it's more about the journey and process of opening up his store Aero. It's a nice story and there are some great artsy photo's but this book is not filled with images for those looking for design inspiration....

    Mr O'Brien is one of the most talented American interior designers working today. This book is a great read and is most inspiring. Very informative history of the beautiful New York, AERO shop.

    Boo, I was bored. There were many grainy pics & not a lot of inspiring imagery. I liked his first book TONS better, not sure what happened here.
