This book contains a well organized view on the works of Archigram, both written and drawn. Despite being all black and white, it's still very rich in visual terms, as would be expected of a book dedicated to Archigram.
As an architecture student I would recommend it to architecture-related people because it's a very good way of getting to know the works of this group, and also to anyone interested in the subject, since their works were very "audience-directed" and don't require a lot of specific knowledge to understand.

Black and white more or less states the case.
A body of people who certainly influenced architecture, and, manner in which the subject can be contemplated. I found both text and drawings depressing indicating a world bereft of joy or optimism.
If ever there was an incidence of pseudo Architecture for Art’s Sake, then look no further. The theoretical option to promote ‘No Rules’ in itself creates rules which spawn disciples who multiply and go forth believing that they are contributing towards civilisation.
