From the Publisher:

If you've never seen Chicago, or even if you'd just like to revisit its breathtaking skyline and cityscapes, there is one definitive book that can take you there. Chicago Today is an exhilarating pictorial tome that will lead you on a page-turning tour in pictures of the city that is second to none.

Featuring more than 150 signature images of Chicago -- including dozens of full-color scenes and vistas captured by renowned photographer David J. Maenza, as well as many classic historic black-and-white Chicago shots that span back to the late 1800s -- Chicago Today reads like a dazzling visual itinerary. Each picture is accentuated by narrated captions thoughtfully composed by author Jay Flynn, who speaks eloquently about the rich heritage of Chicago, its awe-inspiring architectural wonders, and its illustrious citizens.

Also peppered throughout the book are unforgettable quotes by unforgettable Chicagoans, including Michael Jordan, Harry Caray, Carl Sandburg, Wally Phillips, Sammy Sosa, Bill Kurtis, Ramsey Lewis, and Norman Ross, as well as comments from people across the world.

It's all here, anything and everything Chicago, epitomized in timeless pictures for you to enjoy again and again -- the Magnificent Mile, the Water Tower, Wrigley Field, the lakefront skyline, the Art Institute, the Loop, the view from the Sears Tower, the vast array of colorful neighborhoods, and so much more.
