Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal

Palm trees, hard bodies, sun 'n' surf, movie stars, earthquakes....Los Angeles is arguably the world's most diverse, fascinating, colorful, and evolving city-and one difficult to capture in a book, but Stanic has miraculously succeeded. With a combination of no-nonsense writing (e.g., "By the 1970's famed Hollywood Boulevard had become a seedy mix of shabby T-shirt and souvenir shops") and superb photographs of as high a quality as those that Dorling Kindersley publishes, the book takes readers on a realistic tour of Los Angeles, both laudatory and critical. A thorough introduction to the city's history sets the stage for a look at "Lifestyles," "Culture," and "Exploring Los Angeles." Along the way, readers learn who the most prolific graffiti tagger is, where celebrities repose in famously over-the-top cemeteries, which buildings were used in the making of movies and TV shows, and much, much more. Southern California librarians will definitely want this book to show their readers just how little they really know about this unique city, while other libraries should stock their shelves with it for the many people planning to visit El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de Los Angeles de Porciúncula. Highly recommended!-Joseph L. Carlson, Allan Hancock Coll., Lompoc, CA
