Reviews

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

"An elegant book. . . . Unusual . . . full of big ideas. . . . Seldom has there been a more sensitive marriage of words and images."
--The New York Sun

"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

"De Botton is high falutin' but user friendly. . . . He keeps architecture on a human level."
--Los Angeles Times
