I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have since bought it for several other friends. I have learned so much about the history of early Phoenix, Tempe, and Scottsdale. The concept of what the building looked like then and what it looks now is a great idea. I have many meetings at the Security Building in Phoenix and it is really exciting to see who built it and what it used to be. Great book for Phoenicians who really want to learn about their city.
