Did anyone check this book before it went to print?

On the plus side, the images are great and the content interesting.
But the text? I don't think an editor went anywhere near it. The text is repetitive, unstructured and rambling. It leaps from topic to topic without warning. There are repeated words. There are punctuation errors. And that makes for a very irritating read.
Paul Smith is well-known for his attention to detail. It's a pity he didn't get to cast his eye over this. Shame.
So, five stars for images, two stars for text. Let's call it three.
