This is a story of honest mistakes, bad design, hubris, stupidity, greed, corruption -- but above all, it’s a tale of something so monumentally awful that it takes on a sort of soggy grandeur. It's the story of the Dome, a World’s-Fair-like exposition in London, created to celebrate Britain and the new millennium. It was a disaster from start to finish, and almost everything that happened was funny. Designers of amusement parks and expositions can read "Dome and Domer" as a sort of "How-Not-To" guidebook. Everyone else can just sit back and enjoy reading about something going gradually and completely wrong.

    "It would have been funny, had it not been so sad..." ... and Dan Howland communicates this point perfectly. The narrative is a little dry, but the subject matter and the facts more than speak for themselves. I think Dome and Domer should be used as a mandatory case study for every MBA and engineering program in every college who has them (the programs). If you are a manager - big or small - keep this book on your desk at all times. Read it prior to making a decision on a project - especially if the rationale behind that project doesn't feel very... well... rational to you.
