      What a freaky, f'd up history the Chicago L has hadd is having. Who knew it was always so disorganized and crazy, eh? Great look back via anecdotes and old photos. Its main focus are the photos, each with a caption detailing bits of history.

      Despite being a book of mostly pictures, it's quite informative on the history of the L.
