The more I read about San Francisco and the Bay Area, the more I'm pleased that the gods pushed me towards this part of the world as a place to settle. I love it here -- and just when I think I can love it no more, someone like Rebecca Solnit writes a book that pushes my adoration to a higher level.

More than a historical and societal look at the city, it's also a work of art. The photos, maps, drawings, and art in this book are all gorgeous -- so much so that I'm a bit peeved that I purchased this in paperback and not hardcover. Take my advice - splurge, if you can, for the HC.
