Review

Slate.com
"Is it possible to write a stunning book about infrastructure? Kate Ascher's books are bliss for engineering-minded adults and children. Using gorgeous graphics and clear, simple, language, Ascher explains the infrastructure and engineering marvels around us. As David Macaulay won over a generation to architecture in the '70s and '80s with books like Castle and Underground, Ascher is enticing children to engineering, urban planning, and infrastructure."

Praise for THE HEIGHTS:

"In this lushly illustrated book, Ms. Ascher meticulously and lucidly deconstructs the design of manmade towers from the foundation on up to the imperatives of physical and psychological security in a terror-conscious society." -NEW YORK TIMES

"Kate Ascher's 2005 book, THE WORKS: ANATOMY OF A CITY, was essentially a wiring diagram of the city of New York--every city, really--intricately detailing the mechanics of urban infrastructure... Now Ascher's back with another eye-widening piece of illustrated deconstruction, this one on the most enduring symbol of city life... THE HEIGHTS features more than 200 pages of explanations, diagrams, and remarkable stories." - WIRED Magazine

"The book contains graphics that tell you everything about how buildings are designed, constructed, even lit." -NEW YORK POST

***

Praise for THE WORKS:

"THE WORKS is both a reference guide and a geeky pleasure." -TIME OUT NEW YORK

"It's a rare person who won't find something of interest in THE WORKS, whether it's an explanation of how a street-sweeper works or the view of what's down a manhole." -NEW YORK POST

Book Description

With stunning visuals and encyclopedic insight, the author of The Heights and The Works reveals how humans move across the globe by land, sea, and air
