Assembly takes patience but it isn't hard. A second pair of hands would have probably helped with assembly but I got it done alone. Took around 60 minutes. I use it to display photo's and art objects in my living room. Would be nice in an office or kid's bedroom. Cubes are good sized and if assembled like the photo, will hold 10" basket with no problem. Mine came very well packaged (lots of cushioning and protective film.
The book case is perfect for the space where I wanted to put it. It seems sturdy. I have put together eight other pieces of furniture, but this one gave me trouble. The holes all matched up, but the directions were strange. I finally just went with what I instinctively knew should happen. But someone putting one together for the first time, might have trouble. However, it went together and it is still standing, so all is well.
