    Inspiring, informative, and a great place to start a road trip.

    I have to say that I like this book. I received it as a Christmas gift and now, almost three months later, I must say I look at it at least once a day. The book is a nice size, not too big, not too small. It has a nice durable feel to it, encouraging you to bring it along with you when you go exploring like a good field guide should. I am not a Frank Lloyd Wright fanatic, but I have been to see a couple of his buildings and have enjoyed the experience. I think this book would make an excellent gift for this kind of casual fan. I haven't planned any trips with this book but I have used it to find two houses in my area. The book is informative without being boring and I love the background given by the author behind the buildings. I understand that it is impossible to get every last detail about these buildings, especially the ones that no longer exist, but the information is missed. It is also impossible to get interior photos of every building, but that would be nice as well. Given the limitations of the subjects (they are people's homes, after all), I think the author did an excellent job. Each building is listed under a broader heading of what area of the world it is in, plus an exterior photo, map and GPS coordinates as well as current helpful information like, "The compound is not accessible because of the narrow private road and ferocious animals kept by the owners. Unless invited, it would be better to avoid this house" In my opinion, this book would make an excellent gift for anyone with even a small interest in the work of Mr. Wright.
