Tilt: A Skewed History of the Tower of Pisa

By

This book, which cleverly physically tilts in the manner of its subject, is a lucid and engaging history of the famous tower, including a number of efforts to correct its lean. The author deftly sketches the fluctuating fortunes of Pisa over time, which played such a role in the construction of the tower and the other buildings in Pisa’s Campo dei Miracoli. Highly recommended!
