It's history. It's travel. It's art. I skipped around, then read the whole book. Each building/ruin/monument/bridge is covered in only 2-4 pages. From commonly known sites such a the Pyramids of Giza to lesser known structures like the Great Mosque of Djenne in Mali (I had never heard of it). Interesting from the ancients to the moderns (Guggenheim Museums, English Channel tunnel, etc).

Cursory overview of structures of the world, some , of which are dubious as to being called 'world's greatest'.
Basically an illustrated book with some text, Photos and drawing are for the most part, well done.
