Whoa, liber_vermis, lighten up! I did not think his writing was "belaboured" (English spelling--pretentious?)

its almost a thriller, enjoy his chapter "On Tools of the Trade"

No need for maps, drawings, photos; the author makes it clear that this is not a "how to" book.

Its something different, and what is life without spice?

Give it a try.

When the author admitted to "abstraction" (p. 109) I realized that my dissatisfaction with his belaboured writing style, hyperbole and often wild speculation were not misplaced. For a treatise on architecture and urban layout, this book completely lacks floor plan drawings, street maps, or photographs. The author provides free flow end notes but no bibliography or index.
