This guy's obsession with San Francisco seems to be catching.

If you love San Francisco and it's history, this gives you an insider's viewpoint, from a columnist who was born in Sacramento, moved to SF and wrote a daily column for 50 plus years, about the great and small in his beloved, beleaguered town. Dated but informative about how SF got where it is.
Many similar dilemmas still confront SF today.

Loved it. I was living in the Bay Area for most of this volume. The first thing one did in the morning over one's first coffee (and cigarette) was to read Herb Caen. The city he so loved and wrote about is long gone, unfortunately. The book brought back memories of my youth here.
