Hmmm, seems like this book tries to cover everything in small space. I understand that building, painting and weathering figures and vehicles is important but there are so many instructions and SBS manuals that there is really no need for new one.
If book is about building vignettes it should focus on that, how to create dynamic setting in small area. And not rehash same advice on shading and highligting figures and where and how to build dust and dirt deposits on vehicles.
Maybe book like this would be handy 20 or 30 years ago when you couldn't find advice on painting online and one, jack-of-all-trades book was good addition to your reference library. But now you have so many bigger books that manage to be both wider and more detailed (though also more expensive) and focus on actual build and not on building figures.
Yes, tell me how to make a tree, shrubs, bushes, wooden fences and unpaved roads, don't tell me how to paint a figure. When I need advice on that I'll grab one that has "Figure Painting" in title.
