Review:

"A new book by Alain de Botton is always a treat … de Botton is literate, articulate, knowledgeable, funny and idiosyncratic." (Forbes.com)

"The Best introduction to architecture I have ever seen … [de Botton] writes with an engaging freshness … I can't recommend this book too highly. It gets just about everything right." (The Boston Globe)

"A jewel of civility, wit and insight; de Botton has produced wondrous essays. An invitation to hyperbole … a volume to give one an expansive sense of wonder." (The Baltimore Sun)

Book Description:

A compact offering for anyone looking for a little philosophy in their lives.
