Reviews and comments:
"Michael Effler makes design looks like child's
play...with his knowledge of design and
architecture, he builds the audience's
understanding. His delivery builds confidence
in a man you would hire to design your spa,
a man who could walk into a derelict building
and turn it into a "Palace of Dreams."
—James Knight, Spa Management Magazine
