Very interesting read. This book is definitely more philosophy than anything, but if you're interested in architecture, aesthetics and philosophy and willing to invest some time it's great. Definitely not condensed

Scruton's reasoning can be dense and difficult to follow, but it all comes together at the end, and I found myself agreeing with his conclusions.

This is one of those books that reassures me I'm really not a philosopher! Thankfully, Scruton summarizes his argument at the end!
