"The winner of a host of prizes, this delicately laid-out book advises students how to approach a number of design principles. Including advice on everything from 'how to draw a line' to 'how to sketch a one-point perspective of a rectangular interior space' this is a must-have for anyone starting out in the field." -- Will Coldwell, The Independent
"How to draw a line, the meaning of figure-ground theory, hand-lettering and the fact that windows look dark in the daytimeeach item has resonance beyond architecture. Books like this are brief tutorials in the art of seeing, a skill useful in every aspect of life on the planet." -- Susan Salter Reynolds latimes.com

See the book as 101 bite-sized architectural ideas to get you thinking - ideas that can direct you to deeper research and study. It is good for beginners, but probably too simple for anyone who has studied much architecture. Since I'm an architectural newbie, it was great!
In this case, it is definitely worth paying the postage charge to receive the hardbound edition, as it is lovingly bound with a library spine, stiff cover boards chosen for their materials, and laid out with generous whitespace that doesn't make the printed content disappear into the gutter. It's a pleasure to read and to hold in your hands.
