Editorial Reviews


"Thoughtful... Fisher encourages readers to rethink their priorities beyond monetary gain and demonstrates through discussions and analysis that financial riches alone have never satisfied architects. His book is an invaluable aid for developing a more rounded definition of success in architecture." --Architectural Record, June 2011

"Written with disarming directness and simplicity, Fisher offers sage ethical guidance through re-purposing the idea of lifecycle costing (for us mystics karma?) when deciding whether youve acted ethically in your practice, with particularly invaluable examples for the U.S. design juggernaut working in China and the Middle East. His postscript could have been preface: In a depressed economy, ethics may seem extraneous, something nice to do once we pay the bills. But the opposite is true.", December 3, 2010
