really liked it

Nice quick read... my graduate school professor and supervisor gave it to me as a present nearly 10 years ago. It's a step by step detailed account of how the Plan of Chicago came to be. Even though I only lived in Chicago for 2.5 years, it always had a special connection to me personally... even before I lived there it was the ideally planned city and inspired me to choose my profession. The multifaceted strategy to build public and private support for Daniel Burnham's vision is really ground zero for understanding successful American city planning.
