A great reference source and "coffee table" addition for anyone connected with UCLA. Well presented and very thorough - highly recommend!

By Sarah Lemke on April 7, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bought this on a whim and send it right back. It's dry and clearly written from a development (fund raising) self-glorification perspective. There are a lot of interesting facts sprinkled here and there but it's built on the archives of pics that the Alumni Association has been leaning on for decades. It's the same information synthesized into one book and it's missing the important part: the student perspective. A book telling the history of UCLA shouldn't be about when buildings were built and awards were won. That's an administrative and political angle. I was hoping it would read like a human narrative and it doesn't. This book is great if you want to know about building projects, accomplishments of faculty and "famous" alums. If you want to read about the UCLA you remember as a student, this isn't your book.
