Every first year architecture student should read this wonderful book. What Mr. Patt has done is to demythologize architecture and the profession. Someone considering a career as an architect should have a clear understanding of the work and the skills/education required. This book provides precisely that. Mr. Patt gives us information in bite sized segments that are easily grasped and understood. It’s also valuable content for any person considering engaging an architect for a home renovation, new home construction, or commercial project. After reading this book the prospective client will understand who they are hiring and therefore be better able to develop a solid working relationship with their professional. This book is a gem. The table of contents and preface draw you in and make you want to read it in its entirety at one sitting. Well done!
