Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811822222, Paperback)

Did you know that the Golden Gate Bridge is designed to sway 27 feet in an earthquake? Or that famous Lombard Street, the Crookedest Street in the World actually isnt even the crookedest street in San Francisco? Written by the same author who brought us Play Ball and other best-selling trivia books, this quirky compendium of fun facts and stories about The City is cut in the shape of the Golden Gate Bridge. From BARTs transbay tube that sits 130 feet below the surface of the San Francisco Bay to the top of the 853-foot-tall Transamerica Pyramid, all of San Franciscos best-kept mysteries are revealed and popularbut inaccuratemyths are exploded. A distinctive souvenir for visitors, a great impulse buy for locals, and a necessary dispute settler for San Francisco fanatics everywhere, this book takes a fresh approach to the City That Knows How, but prefers not to.
