I enjoyed this book very much. It's more a short history of Boston than the back bay but it was well done and I learned a lot about the history of my city.

I lived in Massachusetts just outside of Boston all my life until last December. When I saw this book I just had to have it. I had heard a long time ago that the Back Bay section of Boston was created by filling in some body of water. And that now some of the buildings need support so they'll stop 'settling'. This book makes me feel like I finally know 'the rest of the story'.

For a primer on Beacon Hill and Back Bay this is ok. Detail is lacking. More detailed maps needed. Two stars is generous.
