    1. Some good stories, especially the contributions by Tony Perez and Jerry James. And anything from Adrian Roberts is always welcome. But as a whole this collection is a pretty slapdash affair, poorly edited and amateurish.

    2. Picked this up during thesis research in relation to temporary architecture. I really enjoyed reading these firsthand stories and getting the variety of topics in relation to Burning Man that this book offers.
