This little guide is a handy reference to the architectural styles that can be found throughout the world. While experts in the field would inevitably find it superficial, it is nevertheless a wonderfully compact resource for potential travellers. Good descriptions with excellent pictures to help explain key elements that define architectural schools and styles.

My only problem with this book was the amount of focus on revivalist movements in architecture without listing many aspects unique to the revival. It felt like reading the original section again, making it redundant.
