Critique: Profusely illustrated throughout, "Essays On Thermodynamics, Architecture and Beauty" is an impressively informed and informative work of exceptional scholarship and especially recommended as a core addition to professional, college, and university library Architectural Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
As thermodynamics requires, energy is always conserved (the first law), and when it flows from hot to cold it can do work, limited by the generation of disorder, or entropy (the second law).

However, the limitation that the speed of light is the ultimate velocity contradicts the notions in classical thermodynamics, since the laws of thermodynamics, described by exact differentials, apply to ideal states that are in a long-term equilibrium, or to quasi-static processes that can respond quickly to establish thermal equilibrium.
