Format: Paperback
It was quite enlightening see who Richard M.Daley has aligned himself with and how the city is really run. I'd say this is a must read for anyone who lives in the city of Chicago.It's a shame more people don't pay more attention to the power behind the power.

Format: Paperback
The political cancer described and challenged in this book has spread from Chicago to all of Illinois government and maybe even Washington. This book must be read by all to encourage a change in our cowardly rubber stamp system of politics. A companion read is One Hundred Percent Guilty: How an Insider Links the Death of Six Children to the Politics of Convicted Illinois Governor George Ryan
