Love 2-page layouts because I always have alot of photos over one event. This is a great guide to help build some awesome layouts especially when you have brain drain.
The sketches in this book are more detailed than most sketches, including sizes for pictures as well as mats and strips. Suggestions for small- and large-patterned papers and stripes also are included. Positions for items (such as 2 inches from bottom of page) also make these easier to use than most sketches. The sketches are two-pagers, but could easily be adapted to single page layouts, and there is heavy use of 4x6 photos.
On the negative side, there are no photos of complete pages based on sketches. My guess is that is because everything is in black-and-white and it would have been more expensive to include color pages.
I think this book will be useful for "knocking out" some pages quickly, but I wish sample layouts were included.
