Famed for its lean that has defied gravity since its inception over 800 years ago, this book chronicles what modern engineers consider to be the most flawed building still standing today. Closed in 1990 due to fears of imminent collapse, a panel of world famous engineers have finally understood why it has been leaning and have solved the engineering problem of arresting any further lean and have stabilized this beautiful bell tower for future generations.
