You Were Never in Chicago by Neil Steinberg is today’s Free eBook of the Day.

This reporter’s memoir is all about his experiences in the windy city. Check it out:

Steinberg takes readers through Chicago’s vanishing industrial past and explores the city from the quaint skybridge between the towers of the Wrigley Building, to the depths of the vast Deep Tunnel system below the streets. He deftly explains the city’s complex web of political favoritism and carefully profiles the characters he meets along the way, from greats of jazz and journalism to small-business owners just getting by.

The University of Chicago Press has the eBook available as a free download for the next five days.
