I'd actually give it a 3.5. While not exactly riveting reading, it gave a pretty good history of each island and what they have to offer today.

Recommends it for: anyone on the planet visiting Boston
Finally a comprehensive combination of history and user guide of the national park area in Boston Harbor. Easily something to throw in my bag every time I jump on the ferry. Good for the coffee table or as an on-the-go resource. I love this book. The sidebars kick ass.

I’m a total history geek. Favorite historical figure: Teddy Roosevelt. Favorite historical event: the Defenestration of Prague. (Go ahead, Google it.)
