Written by Centerbrook partners Bill Grover, Jeff Riley, Mark Simon, Chad Floyd, and Jim Childress, this recent book explores the personal interests, motivating influences, and enthusiasms that find their way into the firm's work. The book encompasses Fourth of July parades, villages, scene design, pick-up games, televised design workshops, hardware store technology, jazz, mongrels, and more. The book was published by Images Publishing Group in 2001.

In his introduction, noted critic and former editor of Progressive Architecture magazine John Morris Dixon, FAIA, says: "Clearly they share a great enthusiasm for people. Too many architects consider people mainly as obstacles to their self-fulfillment. At Centerbrook, the experiences of people in the buildings the firm designs are the foremost consideration."

The Enthusiasms of Centerbrook is available in bookstores in the United States, Europe, and Asia and through amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
