it was amazing
bookshelves: biography, washington
Recommended to Scott by: a not remembered online mention
Recommended for: Those in the man himself, enthusiasts of city planning and design, architects and Washingtonians.
Read in January, 2009 — I own a copy

My enthusiasm for this book is greatly colored by the fact that I'm a native Washingtonian.
I've read masny dozens of books about Washington and its history, but this one was filled with a plethora of information and incidents unknown to me. Of course, the subtitle tells it all; this is a fascinating look at the character of L'Enfant.
A wonderful history lesson.
