    • It is an interesting read if you are into architecture and one of the leading developers who shaped Houston, Texas and later some of the largest cities in the world. Gerald D. Hines was a force of his time and his company has grown to international standard. The book does take some odd turns and I would say you can find better books about this man on the market. However, I still felt it was a interesting read and would recommend it if this is a topic or person that interests you.
