Steve Cory has spent more than 20 years as a deck builder and re-modeler.
While there are some organizational changes in this fourth edition, much of the content, including photographs and text, has not been updated since the previous, 2005 edition. The new collection of professional deck plans is from Steve Cory's Deck Designs, so if you already have that book, you can skip this one. Conditionally recommended.

"Do-it-yourselfers seeking a formidable challenge should consider
building a deck. "'Decks' "has the necessary step-by-step
instruction, plus several hundred color photos and drawings."
