From Library Journal:

More than any other city, Chicago is closely associated with the development of the skyscraper. This lavishly illustrated survey shows why. Many of the 100 or so buildings depicted are already architectural icons, among them Adler and Sullivan's Auditorium Building, Helmut Jahn's State of Illinois Center, and SOM's John Hancock Center. John Zukowsky's introduction provides a clear overview of the skyscraper's development, its technological achievements, and aesthetic considerations; concise descriptions and insightful critiques of specific buildings follow in chronological order. An epilog illustrating 13 projects in progress completes this handsome and indispensable volume. Highly recommended for anyone interested in American architecture.
