Mulholland Drive

Water to the Angels: William Mulholland, His Monumental Aqueduct, and the Rise of Los Angeles - Les Standiford

I listened to the audio book and I thought it would be more interesting than it was.  The book is very boring and dry and discussed William Mulholland's upbringing in the late 19th century and early 20th century and how he became the Director of the Water Works for Los Angeles.

 

I cannot recommend this book unless you really, really, really, really like Civil Engineering history and the history of building an aqueduct.
