it was amazing

I recently re-read this book. I first read it in 1992 while I was living in Chicago. At that time, I enjoyed all of the local history that I previously did not know or even heard before.

After re-reading it, once again I enjoyed reading about why Chicago made it and other cities in the region did not. It's a great economic history and somewhat relevant to current events.
