If you want a perfect book for travel, lazy days, and late nights, this is it. Vitruvius proves himself a masterful author and expert on all things architecture. Anyone who claims to appreciate it does not if they have not yet read this. The earliest work on architectural theory is still the most relevant even in the modern age. Eloquent and thoughtful, this is a riveting novel.
