Why did two people write reviews of this book without knowing that it has nothing to do with horrible Sept. 11? One reviewer even expresses disappointment at the idea that this book is not about the NYC Twin Towers! Hunh? Look at the title - - they're different buildings!
Whatever. They are stunning buildings, as were the NYC Twin Towers.
If you have an interest in the architecture and amazing engineering challenges that brought these amazing structures into our lives (we in the West will not be building impractical skyscrapers evermore) ... this is a great overview.

The twin Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia became the tallest buildings in the world when they were completed in the latter half of the nineties. This architectural marvel became the first building in about 100 years to be taller than any building in the United States. Of course there are more stories in the Sears Tower (the previous record holder) and the broadcast towers do actually make it higher than the Petronas, but architectural standards for height measure spires but not broadcast towers - go figure. The Sears Tower can also still claim the highest observation deck of a building while the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, Canada has the highest of any structure (the CN being considered a free standing structure and not a "building").
It is a great shame that the world trade towers no longer exist but it has been a long time since they were even the tallest buildings in even the U.S. (see other reviews). The Orient seems to be leaping ahead in building technology and this book illustrates one such example.
Now is the time to get this book as it still proclaims the Petronas as the 'tallest in the world' as plans are under way for even a higher tower in Shanghai, China and the record may again fall. In the present however, the Petronas are a great example of two countries working together with a group of Japanese construction crews working on one tower while the other was completed by Malaysians. This may be the first and only time in building history where such a unique strategy and cooperation took place.
American architects may have started the skyscraper in 'the Chicago school' but the future of tall buildings currently lies in the far east. I recommend this book to those who can swallow their 'America first' pride and see the glowing accomplishment of architecture in that region of the world.

P.S. Other reviewers should read the book or at least look at the description before pasting thoughts that are not relevant.

yiks! i never knew there were other twin towers in other places.
AND i ALWAYS thoought that OUR twin towers were the tallest buildings in the world! (just shows how much i know huh?)
well, o.k. what do you expect from a simple girl growing up in the city and who never went to college... i only know what i see, and to me the twin towers LOOKED like the tallest buildings in the world i still miss them. it still HURTS to look in that direction. tha towers that used to decorate the skyline of my city are gone, but im happy to know that somewhere in another city there are other twins. good to know. thanks.

These twin towers have nothing to do with the World Trade Center twin towers so tragically destroyed on Sept. 11. This may be a good book (I haven't read it), but it's about buildings in Malaysia, not in New York City.
