If you can get past the glitches caused by what must have been optical scanning of an existing text format, this book will give you new respect for bridges & those who build them. I think Talese wants to remind us how much we take these skills & their attendant risks for granted. -- catwak

I share others' thoughts ... book is about the people rather than the bridge and whoever did the scanning for the eBook did a terrible review job! You can't change the font style or size. It's a quick read, once you figure out that "Alackinac" means "Mackinac" and "Airs." means "Mrs." There were a few sentences I never did figure out ...

Book is more about the men who worked on the bridge, rather than the bridge itself, however I found parts to be very interesting. The scanning, thiugh, is terrible and made parts if this book hard to read.

Many errors and font cant be changed makes for an extremely poor ebook experience Book itself is ok, but rather shallow and has little information about the bridge itself or its construction• mostly just stories about some of the workers on it and a few of the people displaced by its construction
