Very simple and simplistic overview of Western architecture. Mostly graphics, a few amusing words. Good for those who need a painless quick overview of broad development of architecture. Covers the main movements and architects in a way that is easy to understand and remember.

Good basic information though the author definitely has a bias against modernism.

The commentary is overtly subjective and cynical, but the approach, comic and brief, still makes for an interesting and informed breakdown of architectural history and style.
