"Perhaps in counterpoint to all that operatic drama, the book is sanguine: meticulous in its accounts and assembly of original materials.. Yet in its methodical synthesis of Utzon's few built and many unbuilt works, in its application of underreported facts to well-worn legend, Andersen's work is instantly indispensable." - Architect magazine
