    The chapters of this book that are just descriptive, were fascinating, like reading a time capsule of a Chicago that has completely disappeared. (But has left some architectural and geographical remnants.) Reading it on the brown line to and from work was an almost surreal experience. The later chapters, that are more proscriptive, are really dated in a less interesting and more infuriating way.
