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.
I love architecture!
good book for everyone, simple and easy to understand. first step to understand what is architecture.
Good basic information though the author definitely has a bias against modernism.
