    As a child growing up in the 1960's I visited the New York World's Fair a number of times but I confess that my memories of that place are pretty vague given the fact I was 7 years old at the time. I remember the tire ride and every time I went there I said I was going to ride it but every time I went there I would chicken out. This is a regret that I have to this day. I never lost my fascination with that ride though. I bought Steve's book because I knew it would have incredible detail on the tire and the fair itself. It did not disappoint. It's a very nice book full of tons of pictures and facts from the fair and afterwards. This book is a great addition to my New York World's Fair collection. After reading it I now want to take a road trip to Michigan to revisit the tire.

    If you have an interest in the history of the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair, the city of Detroit or US Rubber, this book will be an amazing find. You will be amazed at how much information author Steve Frey has amassed and put together to present a comprehensive look at the giant tire ferris wheel that US Rubber created for their participation in the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. The ferris wheel was one of the hits of the Fair. Unlike most other exhibits that met their fate by the wrecker's ball, the "Giant Tire" went on to become a Detroit landmark following the Fair. It is one of the very few artifacts of the Fair still remaining in the present day. The book itself is nearly 300 pages long and chocked full of gorgeous photos and memorabilia. Treat yourself to this book. It will become a cherished collectible in years to come.
