Product description

Review

"Time after time, his descriptions neatly capture the distinctiveness and character of even the most unusual buildings...[The book succeeds] through his quiet intelligence, passionate conviction, and the charm of a personality lightly tinged with melancholy."

-- "Washington Post"

Narrator Simon Vance proves both professorial and affable as the book explores these fascinating topics, educating the listener with facts and insights...De Botton's essay holds a mirror to the human spirit as it is expressed in our architecture.

-- "AudioFile"

With originality, verve, and wit, de Botton explains how we find reflections of our own values in the edifices we make...Altogether satisfying.

-- "San Francisco Chronicle"

Elegant...Unusual...full of big ideas.

-- "New York Sun"

"Entertaining and stimulating...The strength of his book is that it encourages us to open our eyes and really look at the buildings in which we live and work."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"De Botton has a marvelous knack for coming at weighty subjects from entertainingly eccentric angles."

-- "Seattle Times"
