The most wonderful book production I've ever seen so far ! Well researched on historical facts.Well summarised topics, considering the complexed scope of architecture that sometimes perplexes people who are involved in its creation and people for whom it is created.Excellently composed illustration. An ingenious way of illustrating the topics. It makes architecture much more fun, interesting and inspiring than the actual practice of it in reality (from an x-architect's point of view). I'm sure it is a good collection for architects who still have keen interest in architecture. The book represents the effort level needed to excel in any creative areas.

I purchased this book for two younger children (ages 6 and 10)with the expectation that it would be something they could enjoy forseveral years. That objective was certainly fulfilled, but, what surprised me was how easily the children picked-up some of the more complicated concepts and examples. The models were a tremendous stimulus to their imagination and their curiosity, especially because the models operated in several different ways. This book should be a required purchase for anyone with interest in their habitat, whether it be ancient or modern. By the way, the adults thought it was great too.

I have seen 100's of thousands of books, and this one is near the top of the list. Not only is it one of the best pop up books I have seen, it is very informative and educational. It is a great learning tool for most ages and it's alot of fun too. The price is worth the effort the publishers have put in. It also sub.'s as a great coffee table book as well.

It's just cool. We got one for Christmas and it was our favorite gift. It is loaded with clever ways to look at, understand and appreciate architecture, with a lot of 3-D pop-up features. A great gift for an architect or the very urbane, cultured sort who has everything or is hard to impress.

As a New Media designer, I appreciate the interactivity nature of this book. A book that you HAVE to turn around to read, structures you have to build, and the lighting of MY room falling through the building skeletons - all these are things that "interactive CDRoms" cannot offer.

I first bought a copy of this book for my nephew, but I had played with it and shown it to my friends so much that I needed to buy a second copy to give away. This book is so carefully produced, and with such incredible quality, that it's hard to believe that they can sell it so cheaply.

What a gorgeous book!! A historical overview of architecture, with exquisite and intricate pop-ups to illustrate the text. I can't even imagine the work that went into designing this book. It's a treat for the mind, as well as for the eyes. Well worth the (full) price!!
