Unfortunately, this book is, almost exclusively, one of the worst attempts at analytic architecture that I have ever read. It oversimplifies and underestimates the depth of sensitivity with which architects are using emerging computer technologies to explore new domains of design philosophy. Having quite a familiarity of the the firms that the author hurriedly squimmed over in his text, I found no new insights or comprehensive frameworks with which to view the current architectural landscape. If you are looking for attractive, computer renderings, then by all means purchase this book. But if you are searching to refine your understanding of the current architectural culture, find a different author.
I read this book when it first came out, and my initial reaction was that it was an overhyped piece of trash. Nowhere in the book is there one piece of relevant information, with regard to the world of architecture (or anything else, for that matter). I decided to give it some time and try rereading it, to understand what my colleagues saw in it. I still can't figure it out. This book was extinct the moment it hit the public realm. I'd suggest spending your time (and money) elsewhere.
The images are very dated, and one has to wonder how anyone would consider it a good read. Perhaps, the reviewer(s) that rate it well could very well be the author himself trying to up his sells cause its bad.
