This book for some will be too filled with details. For others it will be just plain and simply dull or boring. But for the few who are required to read the ink between it's covers or those inquisitive enough to open this book up you will find a plethora of tidbits which will help draw a picture as to why we are back in a recession again. Why our political representatives have dropped the ball while they were in their own end zone on the football field.
Like all books it is written with an amount of perspective coming from the author's personal knowledge, point of view and beliefs. Much of it is accurate in is description of how things actually progressed historically here in NYC. (Somethings are likely hidden behind closed doors which no one will ever know about except for those who were in the room).
Bottom line is that this is a book for EVERYONE who wants to understand in a fairly rounded understanding how the cycle of history has repeated itself over and over here in the Global City we call New York. The common players are Politicians, Affluent, Working Class, and Real Estate. Hopefully through the digesting of this text people will seek out what is right for them, their children, their country and the globe.
In my opinion, being that I lived here in NYC during a good portion of the period from 1980 to present it connects the dots of what I've seen occurring in the landscape of NYC (from impoverish to affluent areas) which I never truly desired to understand nor made the efforts to piece together. I hope you are able to gleam something from this book no matter where you have lived. To understand the underlining dynamics that are in play which tug and pull at all players in NYC. And just maybe you will become involved in making it work just a bit better for everyone.
