FTC Rating: 3.5 out of 5
I love this book because the author juxtapositions the paths of two different, brilliant and ambitious men. One commits himself to shaping the American skyline, while the other...well you'll have to read the book to find out.
Strengths: -Fascinating historical account of the Chicago World's Fair -Larson's descriptions are wonderfully vivid and often terrifying -The origin story of the Farris Wheel
