"When surveying the city's development over the past decade through this handy resource book, it is readily apparent that change requires leadership, perseverance and talent to build projects that improve the quality of life in Toronto." (Canadian Architects 2010-03-01)
"The book, pocket-sized and jammed with photographs, was a three-year labor of love, and it features buildings and parks from Etobicoke to Scarborough, the waterfront to the 401. Attention is paid to the usual suspects, Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts and the Bata Shoe Museum receive full pages, but equally enticing are little known areas like the Schulich School of Business at York University and the laneway homes on Croft Street in Little Italy." (National Post 2010-03-13)
"Toronto has undergone 'a dramatic architectural transformation' over the last 15 years, say the authors of a new book that gives a snapshot of some of the city's most important recent buildings." (The Canadian Press 2010-04-12)
"The descriptions [in the Guidebook] give a short but thorough background on the projects, while describing the formal merits of each; the color photographs are excellent; and the quality of architecture (most in the public sector) would make other cities jealous. Overall the guidebook is optimistic and positive, celebrating Toronto's recent architecture as a part of the city's larger embrace of culture and creativity." (Archidose 2010-09-13)
"A handy pocketbook-sized text, this is a perfect companion for the Torontonian who likes to explore the city on foot." (BlogTO 2010-10-06)
