This book surprised me in a couple ways. One, it was very thorough, as if one was taking a class and having everything explained to them. Two, it had good graphics to follow along with what was being presented. I read it along with my 10 year old, who found it very interesting. I think I may have a future architect at my house! It calls itself a handbook, and I would have to agree. There is enough information in here about the basics. Things like elevation, site plan, floor plan, scale, and so much more. The author explains it all in simple terms that are easy to understand. What impressed me was along the reading we ran into some bits of history from Greek to Frank Lloyd-Wright! I recommend this for young ages who are talking careers or who need to make a book report on similar subjects. Or just plain learning value for a parent to teach the child. ***I received this ARC copy in exchange for review purposes. This did not influence my opinion on author or book.
