I have to admit to being a little nervous when I was approached recently for my views on the above book, Cities of Kings. I have followed Bespoke Traveller for quite some time and didn't want to spoil a good friendship. I needn't have worried. Atreyee Gupta and Jesse Japitana have done a great job. Their passion and enthusiasm for architecture and history transmits readily to this self-publication, and I am delighted to be able to heartily recommend it.
