(…) [T]he chapters Components and Fabrics are a pleasing tackle architectural historical past and can be offering useful knowledge for non execs! I see this guide as an encyclopaedia to get elementary knowledge on quite a lot of subjects. However the very Brief chapters are in point of fact simply a kick off point. The photographs are very useful all the way through and the structure is blank and is helping the reader navigate the guide. You might be on the lookout for a Brief Tale of Structure? That may be precisely what you get, in the most efficient imaginable means.”Goodreads reviewer
