Chicago gets excited about Herbert Hoover

I've long had a thing for Chicago, started when my father worked for International Harvester and went there for his most important business trips, and it has grown now that my daughter has settled in the city. I've become a Bears fan, and a regular browser of the Chicago Reader which apart from being an outstanding source of local news is one of the few alternative weeklies in America that still takes books seriously. So I was especially pleased that the Chicago Reader put Hoover: An Extraordinary Life in Extraordinary Times on its list of books to read for Fall, 2017.
