I bought this as an introduction to Mikhailov and because it was less expensive than his Case History, which I honestly can't make up my mind to buy or not due to it's controversial approach. The Retrospective is a terrific introduction with beautiful reproductions of a sampling of his major works, all carefully laid out and well organized. The essay's also provide worthwhile perspective. It was nice that the used seller had this for as inexpensive as I found it for --score!
