This was a very disjointed book. The interviews were interesting but chopped up the way they were made for terrible flow. Brewer is not a strong writer but the events of May 1957 make up for that. It would have been nice to hear more of what happened on the Kansas side, since it focused on Brewer's neighborhood and the storm is named for the area. Everyone really seems to forget it wasn't just in Ruskin Heights. This book is okay but could have been much, much better.
