Mostly a political history
What did you like best about City of Ambition? What did you like least?
The story was good enough to keep me listening to the end, but it was much more about the politicians than about the city of NY. If you aren't a fan of political science, then this probably isn't for you.

What you always wanted to know about NYC
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book to a friend, who, like myself, is fascinated by the physical features of New York City and its infrastructure and by the people and politics that led to their creation.
What did you like best about this story?
The interplay of politics, personalities, and physical feats of planning and construction.
Have you listened to any of Ira Rosenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listened to Ira Rosenberg's other performances. I think this one was particularly well read. Mr. Rosenberg's cadences and phrasing made it easy to parse the rather dense and complicated sentence structure favored by the author. Enunciation was accurate and Mr. Rosenberg's tone and modulation was easy on the ear throughout.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
It takes two to tangle?
