really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction-creative
Read in December, 2008

I read very little non-fiction, but I like everything John McPhee writes. There's really noone like him. Whatever the topic he's writing about, I find the structure of his books fascinating. This one is no exception. The other thing I like about him is that he manages to insinuate himself into corners of our society that are very specialized and outside of most people's experience so that he can live what he's writing about. It ends up being a very intimate view of his subject rather than mere reportage. If you've never read one of his books, I heartily recommend him.
