This book is perfect for people like me who often cross roads without thinking, paying more attention to a lovely stained glass window at the side of the road than to the oncoming traffic! It is really well written and has a good sense of humour.

This book should be re-titled a lust for window licking!
I'm pretty sure the 5 star reviews must be from his close friends and family because this book sucks as does Mr Mounts journalism!

A glorified list of almost interesting architectural fact and anecdote, interspersed with a load of barely concealed namedropping.
The description of the stonemasons technique of rustication is particularly badly described.
The authors engorged ego does not deserve this publishing contract, but then he has 'friends' in the right places....
For a more accurate and interesting description of architectural theory try Classical Architecture - A Complete Handbook by Robert Adam.
