Great read! You would have to have lived it to write it.


The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America
Review Date: 12/26/2010


Great if you have an interest in the early history of Chicago and the first world's fair -- murder added intrigue and was well done but found the story somewhat unnerving and difficult to read.

Mingling of fantasy and reality, sometimes hard to follow, but always with visual interest.


Tulipomania : The Story of the World's Most Coveted Flower & the Extraordinary Passions It Aroused

Fascinating history of the tulip -- from the Ottoman Empire to Holland and back. Greed is amazing. The book also touches on a couple other greed induced manias surrounding flowers. Who knew?
