Read in August, 2004

This, like Triangle, was great because of the time period it focuses on.

While this book does discuss skyscraper construction up to more recent buildings, it is the tales of the men who built the Chrysler Building, or the Empire State Building, that are the most harrowing.

To think those buildings, which still stand today, were built by men who risked their lives hundreds, if not thousands, of feet in the air, is just awesome.
