The author divided the work of Hassan Fathy into different phases according to their significance on the development on Hassan Fathy. The book contains a great number of useful historical document such as photos, originally text, plans and sections and also interview with Fathy and other people such as Fathy’s family and clients etc.

The chapter “Further Testing of New Ideas:1948-67” is extremely useful in the research as it has the commentary given by Doxiadis to Fathy on his housing plan for Baghdad, this is where we can observe the collaboration between the two architects and the differences in their understanding on scientific way to solve housing problems.
