There are TWO THINGS you've got to appreciate about this treatise.
First of all it shines through every line that it's written by a man who knows what he is talking about and has actually WORKED Shopping Malls.
The second thing is something which Mike Caldwell said to me just a few weeks ago. We were wandering around London in the McCombomobile. He pointed out the shops in a district we were going through and said, "In a few years time you won't see many shops like that around." I said, "Why?". He said, "Because it will get like the States. Everyone will go to a huge, monster shopping mall and do all their shopping there.
