Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So how dis Chicago get so corrupt and why hasn't something been done about it? Give Dick Simpson a couple hours of your time to patiently explain. With the insight of the insider Simpson parses the meaning of politics and clout in the city that has no shortage of either. Chicago may no longer be "hog butcher to the world" but it remains the world capital of all that decent civic life should not be.

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
