I've read a decent amount on urban sketching and drawing your life, but this book is from the perspective of architecture and landscape design. I skipped the last chapter on digital drawing, but the rest was interesting, if not quite what I was looking for. Lessons on perspective and the color wheel aren't really my thing. I'm definitely a drawing-your-life kind of person, with little interest in design. That said, I could see it being useful for someone interested in design, even if I have no idea how much new ground it actually covers. ( )
