    That depends on how far away from his eyes he has to hold the book and how high the book is. His eye-level from the ground only has low impact on the perceived height of the building.

    605 feet from wikipedia! Is the top of the book aligned with the top of the tower and yet the bottom of the book is aligned with the top???
