    I m going to save you some time and give you the entire takeaway from this book here Burglars do not use the architectural features of buildings as they were intended, often going through walls, ceilings or floors to gain entry.Instead of creative capers, the of author A Burglar s Guide to the City gives us mundane stories about police ride al

    I ve been putting this off because there are two types of reviews that I like to write those where I loved the book and want to sing its praises, and those where I really despised it and can t wait to tear it to pieces When a book is just mediocre I can t get up the energy to bother to say anything.I mean, I pre ordered this book Don t even remember ho

    I really wanted to give this book a higher rating I heard Manaugh interviewed on NPR and was looking forward to the book It needed to be shorter, by at least a 25% If it had been, I would have given it 5 stars The information was delivered well, it just needed to be tighter He should shop for a better editor.


  4. says:

    Well researched, full of great anecdotes and interesting architectural information As a card carrying nerd, I would have appreciated a bitinformation on the background and origins of the weird spaces and architectural loopholes burglars exploit the history of drywall construction, for example, or how and why tunnel systems are created and how and why they can be forgott

    3.5 stars rounded down.I quite enjoyed A Burglar s Guide to the City It was packed full of interesting information, albeit in a very disorganized manner, and various explorations into the means, tools, and minds of burglars Manaugh not only explores the art of burglary but the architectural structures with all of their vulnerabilities that they burglarize We learn early on that


  6. says:

    This is a stunningly dull and repetitive book It has about one chapter s worth of information, stretched and padded to over 200 pages The author will write a perfectly pleasant, informative paragraph, nicely summing up a topic Then, he will follow up with three or fourparagraphs, restating the same ideas and sentiments At several points, I laughed out loud at his literary acrobatics, des

    Great heist stories folded into a mix of history, architecture and society.Loved it I was impressed at the diversity of topics it s possible to touch when going deep into one thing It could definitely inspire some paranoia, since it swiftly cracks the illusion of personal home security , and I learned many things I didn t know I didn t know about lock picking societies.


  8. says:

    Pretentious, repetitive and oddly self congratulatory I gave up a quarter of the way through.


  9. says:

    The point repeated often through this book is that burglars do not use the architectural features of most buildings at they were intended Additional locks on the door are not much use if they can go through the wall, the ceiling or the floor Chapters are spent discussing tunnels, roof jobs, and holing up within a Toys R Us The book begins and ends with George Leonidas Leslie, an architect turned burglar.Extraneous

    I wanted to love this book and thought I was going to from the opening chapter but it meanders The author is weirdly repetitive at times e.g., the author is weirdly repetitive at times and the book can t seem to figure out if it wants to be pop science orphilosophical architecture discussion Regularly swapping between the two means neither ever quite gets fleshed out.That said, I liked a lot of it and it gave me a couple o
