Took a long time to read this one because a couple of the longer essays/stories are a touch boring (John Adams---I'm looking at you). However, all in all it is a great way to get a feel for Paris through the ages and includes all of the biggest names associated with the city.

Particularly fun to finish while on vacation in France. :)
