It was an interesting personal perspective on working with Frank Lloyd Wright---but it was structured really randomly and didn't expand on thoughts when I wanted expansion, but then went into details I didn't really care about.

Photos were great and it made me want to learn even more about FLW.

Very personable, first hand account from a student of F.LL.Wright. A book of admiration and appreciation that doesn't wallow in hero-worship.
