Caro's writing is very detailed and visually discriptive. He clearly both admires and looks down on Moses (both for good reason in my opinion). Moses himself was clearly one of a kind. As I sit in traffic around NYC I often now wonder what the city would be like today had he gone into a different line of work. I remember the details of this book more like a 12-part Ken Burns documentry than a typical bio.
