Críticas:

This is a marvelous wonder-room of a thing, an intricate, deeply researched, and brilliantly written mad scientist s tour of crime and how it s bound to the world we ve built. Revealing, spectacular, and riveting. Warren Ellis, author of Gun Machine and The Planetary Omnibus This burglar s guide isn t for ordinary smash and grab burglars, it s for the rest of us who like to steal in, steal out, and get away with glorious dreams. A spectacularly fun read. Robert Krulwich, co-host of Radiolab Murphy s Law anything that can go wrong will go wrong is especially true for architecture. Geoff Manaugh s liaisons with burglars and bank robbers reveal unexplored niches and loopholes in our cities, and through the eyes of urban hackers we find new possibilities for reinterpreting the built environment. A Burglar s Guide to the City shows that architecture is too important to leave to just the architects. Bjarke Ingels, BIG Architects Who knew urban studies could be so riveting? Geoff Manaugh excels at finding new, illicit, and fresh angles on a subject as loved as it is overexposed the city. In his new book, elegant, perverse, sinuous supervillains maneuver and master the city like parkour champions. I see the TV series already. Paola Antonelli, MoMA Reading Geoff Manaugh is like donning night-vision goggles at the edge of a dark forest you are suddenly aware of, and alive to, a world that was always there but occluded. A Burglar s Guide to the City is a crackerjack intellectual caper. Tom Vanderbilt, New York Times bestselling author of You May Also Like and Traffic Despite its title, Geoff Manaugh's A Burglar's Guide to the City won't teach you how to break into houses. It won't help you outsmart wily cat burglars with ingenious home alarm systems, either. Instead, it explores something a lot weirder and more interesting: Manaugh argues that burglary is built into the fabric of cities and is an inevitable outgrowth of having architecture in the first place. Annalee Newitz, Los Angeles Times An exhilarating, perspective-shifting read. Patrick Lyons, VICE For years, Geoff Manaugh has entertained and fascinated us with his BLDGBLOG, and now he's even better at full-length, with A Burglar's Guide to the City, a multidisciplinary, eclectic, voraciously readable book that views architecture, built environments, and cities themselves through the lens of breaking-and-entering... Manaugh's work is characteristically far-ranging and eclectic, and always fascinating... Come for the true crime, stay for the education in architecture and urban planning. Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing Intriguing... a surprising and fascinating true-crime epic. BBC I cannot think of a more informed, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable tour guide through the historical and contemporary intersection of burglary and architecture than Geoff Manaugh. A Burglar s Guide to the City makes disparate connections seem obvious in hindsight, and my worldview is altered a little bit more, and far for the better, as a result. Sarah Weinman, Barnes & Noble Review Geoff Manaugh s A Burglar s Guide to the City gives the realm of architecture the kinetic thrills of a heist film. Alex Bozikovic, The Globe and Mail Architecture blogger Geoff Manaugh s fascinating book A Burglar s Guide to The City posits that our living and working spaces, no matter how seemingly secure, are proving grounds for small-time crooks and sophisticated criminals alike; a smart thief will calibrate his routine based on the way a specific structure is designed. Manaugh s book locates the spot where architecture and crime intersect. Marc Weingarten, The Guardian A compelling review of the ingenious ways that burglars negotiate the built environment and what we can learn from their infrastructural ingenuity. Robbie Gonzalez, Wired Smart, original... delirious with ideas... it s hard to argue with Manaugh s contention that burglary is a new science of the city, proceeding by way of shortcuts, splices, and wormholes. The Boston Globe A Burglar s Guide to the City is a masterpiece of mad ideas, pouring out one after another. The book is one of the most enjoyable volumes of the year. The Washington Free Beacon Manaugh turns the building world inside out in this fascinating view of the modern city as seen through the eyes of a potential burglar... Readers of this illuminating study will never look at the buildings and cities they live in the same way. Publishers Weekly "

Reseña del editor:

At the heart of Geoff Manaugh's A Burglar's Guide to the City is an unexpected and thrilling insight: the city as seen through the eyes of robbers. From experts on both sides of the law, readers learn to understand the city as an arena of possible tunnels and picked locks and architecture itself as an obstacle to be outwitted and second-guessed. From how to pick locks (and the tools required) to how to case a bank on the edge of town, readers will learn to detect the vulnerabilities, blind spots, and unseen openings that surround us all the time. This simultaneously allows us to view the city from specific buildings and individual rooms to whole neighbourhoods through the privileged eyes of FBI investigating agents and security consultants, people dedicated both to solving and to preempting these attempts at devious entry. Full of absurd and marvelous stories of heists and capers, A Burglar's Guide to the City offers a kind of criminal X-ray of our built environment. Never again will readers enter a bank without imagining the vault geometry, or visit a museum without plotting ways to bring their favourite painting home with them.
