The seven wonders in this book took you on a whirlwind trip around the world. You got to learn the history, and interesting features, of each building talked about. Two things, in particular, I found fascinating were the other proposed designs for the Eiffel Tower, and the helipad that was turned into a tennis court at the hotel in Dubai. The photography was stunning, and the content well explained for a younger audience.
