There are numerous pictures of important historical sites, but the lack of focus on any one site makes it difficult to gain a firm understanding of the topics being discussed.

If you are looking for a great photographical history of architecture in the modern world (15-20th centuries), this book is for you. More a page flipper than a page turner, yet absolutely worthwile if you choose to read the words as well.

It's a good, quality book. Both skilled architects, those who doesn't know anything about technical architecture, art historians and even any history-buffs can enjoy this book.

This book feels like it was written for elementary school students. The patronizing tone of the text quickly becomes annoying, and there are frequent and numerous typographical errors. The index/glossary are woefully inadequate, and I spent hours at a time flipping between the book and a dictionary in order to understand the numerous architecture terms which went unexplained.

This book's helped me a lot for my arch history class. It's a small book you can take on the go and the information is concise with great images. Great buy for anyone interested in learning about the history of architecture.
