This is a book we all need. Its easy to give up on our dreams. With the rating you gave it, it must be worth reading. I've always been interested in Architecture so I think I will enjoy this book.

A great review of a wonderful memoir. I agree with another commenter, I think it's a book that we all need in our lives at some point.

The T-square scares me up to date. Rick Smith is a real go-getter and an encourager. Your review just hits the nail on head that I have to get the book.

Interesting subject matter for a memoir! I wouldn't have usually picked this one off the shelf. Thanks for the review, you left me intrigued.
