The (lengthy) opening essay is stunning, and the rest of the book is mostly just OK. It took me way longer than it should have to realize that the book is predominantly structured as a series of two-page essays, with Steadman's drawings punctuating them, to mirror the left-right rhythm of walking and looking around. It lent the book a nice momentum, tricking you into going much further in one stretch than perhaps you would have otherwise.
