While Pugetopolis is something of a mixed bag, there's no doubt that Knute Berger is an articulate and interesting voice capable of providing shrewd and humorous analysis of the unique quirks that make the Emerald City such a unbeatable place to live. If the residents of Seattle and the surrounding Puget Sound are somewhat prone to making public-spirited blunders of all sorts, at least they make them on a grand scale, and only after excessive hand-wringing, debate, and "morning after" regret. Berger loves to chronicle it all, and if some of his insights are rather pedestrian, at his best he manages to succinctly encapsulate the many and varied elements that make up this strange and wonderful city.
