"William Fulton is the Raymond Chandler of Los Angeles real estate."
- Kevin Starr
California State Librarian and author of Material Dreams: Los Angeles through the 1920s
"A surprisingly lively case study of the battles and alliances of politics, business and people that formed—or deformed—a great American city."
- Publishers Weekly
"One of the most entertaining and thought-provoking books I have read in a long time about urban growth and change... Important reading for anyone interested in contemporary urban development. [Fulton] tells a story that may sound uniquely Los Angeles, but really applies to every growing city in America."
- Richard Peiser
