Pressestimmen

With interesting facts ranging from building inspection and safety issues to the delivery of food and materials to the upper floors, Empire State Building provides readers with plenty of history and even a bit of physics.... Mann draws readers in with her writing style, taking them back to New York City, circa 1930. She not only explains construction techniques and other technical information clearly, but she also gives readers a sense of the thinking process behind the building's design and the problem-solving that went on as the project progressed. Yet it is her focus on the human stories that will most captivate readers. Abundant coloured and black and white archival photographs, maps and paintings provide additional information and enhance the text. There are numbered diagrams showing the sequential steps in various construction techniques as well as a double foldout page showing the month-by-month progress of the construction. A well-written account of a tremendous architectural feat. Highly Recommended.--Gail Hamilton"Canadian Materials" (12/12/2003)
