DVD and Book Recommendation

OK, this is really another test to see if the links below work out! But please, read on...

I've been on a "New York Kick" lately and I watched this great PBS documentary about my old hometown. That got me interested in the life of Robert Moses and I'm currently reading his biography "The Power Broker." I'm about halfway through it's 1200+ pages and it is an incredible book! In a strange way, it is an epic comparable to "The Agony and the Ecstacy" which I read earlier this year (that's a novel based on the life of Michelangelo, FYI). Moses is a much darker figure, but AT LEAST as interesting! Here are some links if anyone is interested. I highly recommend both!
