Neil Steinberg happily explores the many fascinating facets of failure, and writes about them in unique if sometimes twisted ways.

Hatless Jack : the president, the fedora, and the history of an American style by Neil Steinberg ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Not so long ago, we were a country of hat wearers. Hats were tipped, raised, handed, tossed, snapped, passed, checked, waved, and eaten (metaphorically, at least). Many believe the end of this way of life was precipitated by the presidential inauguration of a bareheaded John F. Kennedy; suddenly desperate American hatters were convinced that persuading the young, charismatic new leader to wear a hat would save their declining business. Author Neil Steinberg uses January 20, 1961, as the jumping-off point for uncovering a near-forgotten slice of American history. Using a cast of famous men from Mark Twain to John Glenn, he recaptures the fascinating world of hat wearing, with its hatcheck girls, straw-hat riots, and globe-trotting fedoras taking trips in place of their owners. Hatless Jack is a fascinating look at the history of men's headwear that cuts through the mythology surrounding JFK's impact on the industry, and helps to explain the move from our formal, conformist society to one of individuality and creative expression."--Publisher's description

You were never in Chicago by Neil Steinberg ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
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. Steinberg never loses the curiosity and close observation of an outsider, while thoughtfully considering how this perspective has shaped the city, and what it really means to belong
