You weren't there. This man was and I was 60 miles to the north. You weren't there.

This book was part of my summer reading. I disliked it completely, and wonder where his information even comes from. It is also short and not much of a read at all.

I found Tom Piazza's book Why New Orleans Matters to be a disappointing read. Reading it, I felt as if it was written in haste - written with the goal of being the first published post-Katrina book rather than a well thought out and stirring account of New Orleans' colorful past, devastated present and hopeful future. Key issues were either glazed over or slighted. I wanted to read about the issues and nuances that make this city worth resurrecting and not about the violent attacks and mismanagment during hurricane Katrina. The two angles are counter-productive.
