Although "Invitation to vernacular architecture" is a compulsory book for some courses in built heritage, the knowledge and attitude shift it can bring is worth the obligation. It has brought to me a completely new outlook onto built heritage in particular, and everyday buildings in general. Its accessible writing allowed me to familiarize with the notion of built heritage and, moreover, with the relation it has with the notion of heritage and material culture. It brings neophytes to the importance of material culture and built heritage in our lives.
