I enjoyed reading his articles when he used to write on a weekly basis at "The Observer". He does the same thing here in that he takes the concept of architecture and makes it accessible and stimulating for the layman with an interest in the subject. I especially enjoyed what he said about Dubai and Japan. He writes in a clear and pleasing way and although not always answering all the questions all the time, you come away with something new and feel like you may see something old in a new and refreshing way.

Each chapter has a theme illustrated by a particular architect or building which makes it very easy to understand how the author is applying his argument. It is a really enjoyable read which you will want to discuss with others!

Really interesting read and great to have his take on the issues he deals with. Quite a different angle on the built environment world both personal and of wider significance. I have given it to several people as a must read.

Nothing wrong with the content other than I was sold a book with many of the pictures missing, and it was clearly a pre- publication draft copy with no cover...I haven't had time to check if text is missing or wrong...but this seems iniquitous to sell such a thing on Amazon as the book illusatrated with a proper cover etc...maybe I didn't read the small print closely enough
