I recommend this book for anyone living in or visiting Seattle. This is not a tourist guide (although you can use part of it for that), but interesting information about Seattle.

Very interesting and different. I guess I didn't expect for it to be so eclectic in the information.  UFO/Sasquatch sightings. Info on the different boats/ships, bridges, buildings, population, vegetation, trees, movies filmed and where.... all the info is in there and so much more.  

My daughter recently moved to Seattle from California for college which is what piqued my interest in finding out more about Seattle and my interest in the book. I can't wait to share some of it with her when she gets home for Christmas Break. I think she will find it to be a fascinating book. I'm reviewing a digital copy and have a feeling she might want to get her hands on a physical copy.

Enjoy!

Loved this book! I received an advance copy from NetGalley, and enjoyed it so much that I ordered two additional copies to give to friends for Christmas!
If you live in Seattle, or have any interest in visiting there, this book is for you. Chock full of interesting infographics about the city. Crazy charts about the rain, the mountains, the terrain, the streets, the explosion of construction, and on and on. 
I guarantee that you will return to it over and over, discovering something new every time you pick it up!

If you're in search of a standard travel book, this isn't it. We do get a little of everything Seattle here though - from all sorts of history to demographics and culture (past and present) to Sasquatch sightings and much more. This was a very interesting read and I loved learning a bit more about one of my favorite cities.

Thanks to authors Tera Hatfield, Jenny Kempson, Natalie Ross, Sasquatch Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. All comments are my own, unbiased opinion.

An infographic guide book to the real and imagined infrastructure of Seattle.  A riveting in depth exploration and history for hard core locals and visitors alike.
