    One of the great, but often unmentioned, causes of both happiness and misery is the quality of our environment: the kinds of chairs, walls, buildings, and streets that surround us. And yet, a concern for architecture is too often described as frivolous, even self-indulgent. Alain de Botton starts from the idea that where we are heavily influences who we can be, and argues that it is architecture's task to stand as an eloquent reminder of our full potential.

    "Enjoyed but narrator difficult to listen to."

    Story

    I enjoyed the book and loved the subject matter/the author's insights but I found Simon Vance's heavy intellectual voice distracting and difficult to listen to. I would have preferred a different narrator.
