Product description

Review

A humanely barbed Nikolaus Pevsner for our times ... This book should be required reading for planners, developers and architects. --Independent

Hatherley has busily constructed a cult reputation as the angry young man of architectural criticism. --Guardian

Engaging, fearless and startlingly intelligent polemicist. --Time Out
