This book is so tightly bound you will fear ripping it to shreds just trying to open it. Once open, and it is a struggle, you will be awe-struck at the beautiful reproductions of the near-impossible structures designed by Eisenman. Galofaro cuts the architect's excessively thick theory, asking simply, "how has digital production affected his theory based practice?" As tiny as this book is, it is BIG on content and imagery. The author has not spared us his investigations - unearthing some of the architect's little known projects (many unbuilt to date). And while it is not the singular authority on the work of Peter Eisenman, it is definately an essential addition to any collection on contemporary architecture.

This small size book is copiously illustrated with 55 extremely high quality photos (most in color) of models, computer generated renderings, schematics (including plans, sections, perspectives, site plans), office at work, graphics, etc. The text is very clear, sharp, and easy to read despite a small print of part of it, and as expected from Birkhauser. From the publishing technical point of view this book is perfect, but its small size is not an advantage. It is a solid review of a character of Eisenman's works on example of some particular ones, or rather of some methods to produce his works. It is not a monographic review of his works, but rather a handbook with snapshots showing some techniques employing computers and models similar to those used by Frank Gehry.
