This treatise discusses the connection we feel to architecture and how it affects our lives. Blending philosophy and psychology, de Botton seeks to analyze the architecture of our towns and cities, and the objects we buy for our homes, and to examine why we respond to them the way we do. Narrator Simon Vance proves both professorial and affable as the book explores these fascinating topics, educating the listener with facts and insights. Several missed edits detract from the production but don’t discourage one from continuing to listen. De Botton's essay holds a mirror to the human spirit as it is expressed in our architecture.
