Short answer? Terrifically! I learned something interesting about the history, art and science of architecture in every chapter.
As I finished the book, which I accomplished faster than I would have liked or imagined, it occurred to me that Hal Box accomplished with this book what Vitruvius, the first century BC Roman architect, espoused as the goals of good architecture: commodity, firmness, and delight. The book accomplished its program of encouraging me to think more like an architect (commodity); the ideas and illustrations are thoughtfully and artfully presented in a sturdy format which will withstand years of referencing and re-reading (firmness); and Professor Box puts forth his ideas and opinions, earned over a long and distinguished career as an educator and practicing architect, clearly and entertainingly (delight).
Whether one plans to build or is simply curious about how to do it right, Think Like an Architect is a must.
This is also a good book for ordinary people who have an interest in better architecture for their home and city.
Somehow architects have some in common with inventors. They are generalists, working with other specialists. They may work long hours continuously, say 48 hours. Inventors sometimes may stay awake even longer.
