I have never been to Scranton and don't know much about it's history but this book definitely helped me learn about Scranton and it's mayors. Each mayor is given his own section with a biography and a history of his term. There is a liberal selection of pictures throughout. I would have liked it a bit more if there had been color pictures to enrich the information a bit more. I also think the book could have benefited from the addition of a timeline juxtaposing United States history with Scranton's history. I would help people who do not live in Scranton identify with the history in the book. Overall, this is a wonderful reference book and great for any member of Scranton who wants to research a past mayor. This book was also written by a former mayor, so the depth of information is deep. Anyone who is looking for information about a mayor of Scranton would be sure to find it in this book. It would be great for a library reference section. The only downside is the lack of color pictures and a timeline.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
