The story about the four different lighthouses constructed on the Eddystone reef is a story about man's engineuity and the technological development through the last 300 years. It is a very interesting account of the men who tried to improve the technology and what they endured. The book is well researched but gets slightly too detailed now and then, when it in length quotes from correspondence among the involved persons, also regarding other subject matter than the construction of the lighthouse.

The book itself feels a bit too large in format (A4) and would have benefitted greatly if it had been in colour in stead of black and white, since it contains quite a lot of illustrations.
