Summary and Info
I just returned this, which I rarely do with books, because it doesn't contain the specific information it claims to. For instance it says things like "check the weather reports for your area" in sections on the impact of storms on buildings. It's full of conceptual information you probably already know if you wanted to buy such a book and lacks almost totally in specific 'what can I do to adapt my system/building/etc to deal with climate changes better?'. The chapters are a few pages long for each aspect such as lighting, clay soils, heavy rain, etc. They spend a large proportion of each describing the problem (great - you already know that), then giving topical information about solutions. In a few cases the information seems novel and particularly useful, for the most part you're not going to find anything new in here if you're already interested in this field.
