[F]ascinating and well worth pondering. A sharp, eye-opening assessment of urgent architectural needs being fulfilled. --Kirkus Reviews The Great Indoors is that rare book that remains both honest and optimistic about the problems we face, from pandemic disease to social isolation, and--even better--is ambitious enough to identify real potential for change surrounding us in the architecture of our daily lives. Inspiring. --Geoff Manaugh, New York Times-bestselling author of A Burglar's Guide to the City A trip into the great indoors with Emily Anthes is a journey into fascination, dismay, and the occasional jolt of pure wonder. --Deborah Blum, author of The Poison Squad: One Chemist's Single-Minded Crusade for Food Safety at the Turn of the 20th Century
