I was fascinated by the book and surprised that I had never heard any of the history of either side, especially since I grew up in Chicago. The book flips back and forth between the great accomplishement that it was to build the World's Fair in Chicago that introduced many machines and products that are common place today and brough together a number of notable historical figures. All the while a serial killer operated virtually unnoticed and killed more people that Jack the Ripper.
