From the Publisher:

How did the Statue of Liberty get to New York Harbor? Why was the Eiffel Tower ridiculed when it was first built? Why was the ruined Mexican city Teotihuacan considered to be the seat of the gods? Why doess a street run along the top of the Great Wall of China? How did the gardens of the royal castle in Brussels take revenge on their owners?

By linking the buildings to the people who erected and lived in them, and by introducing us to stories and myths connected with them, architectural history is presented to the reader as a combination of art historical information with delightful anecdotes.

He is the author of Palaces that Changed the World and co-author of Paintings that Changed the World (both Prestel).
