Lost Cleveland: Seven Wonders of the Sixth City Reviews
Being born and raised in Cleveland, I always like finding interesting tidbits about the city that I didn't know before. I got this as a gift for my dad for Christmas - but ended up reading it first myself!
I purchased this book to give as a birthday gift. My friend loved the book because she loves old photos of Cleveland.
It's embarrassing to say that I'm born and raised in Cleveland, and I didn't know about most of the cool and forever lost places and stories that are shared in this excellent book. Michael Dealoia gave me an education about the history of the city I love so much, and for that I am grateful. So much so it made me feel even prouder to be a Clevelander.
The author is sloppy and writes with a "smart ass" attitude. An adult should have forced him to think about the subject matter and encouraged him write something worth reading. Sad.
Kinda lame. Good pictures but most of the info' s regurgitated and I've read way more detailed descriptions elsewhere. Fast read.
