New, practical paperback edition of the landmark design manifesto from the UK’s favourite design guru.

In this inspirational yet also practical paperback Kevin explores all areas of domestic living, from materialism to sustainability, craftsmanship to comfort.

‘passionate; knowledgeable; eloquent and basically everything that most TV presenters are not’ The Independent

‘Kevin McCloud can enthuse over a simple joist like no one else. This is a man who actually enjoys watching concrete dry… his enthusiasm is so infectious’ The Observer
