Hatherley has busily constructed a cult reputation as the angry young man of architectural criticism. --Guardian
Engaging, fearless and startlingly intelligent polemicist. --Time Out

The only criticism I can make is that of the book itself. I mean here, the physical object and not the text. The pictures are atrociously printed; the paper cheap and why is it that a writer who so clearly believes in Britain as a `maker' has had his book printed in Sweden? That aside I wait eagerly for the next book.
If you want to see hope there's plenty of people out there with actual ideas - not just criticism.
Save your money for something more positive.
