This book presents a fascinating historical survey of Parisian architecture over the centuries.
The author clearly loves Paris and demonstrates without any pomposity how well he knows it.
He does not shy from giving his opinion which spices up the book and prevents it from being academic or strictly descriptive.
One should be aware however that the city's history or that of its urban development are not really expounded here and thus that a certain level of previous knowledge is required to fully appreciate the book.
By the same token, this is by no means a travel guide but rather a work that will allow Paris connoisseurs to further their understanding of the city's architecture and its evolution.
