One of my favorite books. Tony Wrench tells the story of the controversial roundhouse at Brithdir Mawr in an easy, narrative style. His plans are as relaxed as their anticipated application, but he always makes good with the sound rationales and pearls of wisdom when it matters. You'll come away from it feeling like you were there. It's educational, inspiring, and as timely today as it was 3,000 years ago.
