Mr. Delaney's attempt at shining a light on the underbelly of such an amazingly deadly industry should be heralded by all tower hands in all walks of life, for it comes at great risk due to the faceless powers that be that find such works abhorrent to the status quo that is the cellular world. Just like the many, many deaths that piled up during the building of the Great Wall of China, or the great rairoad race across the young United States, these tower dogs risk life and limb for the almighty dollar and, unfortunately, their share of the dollars is but a paltry sum compared to the vast amount bandied about by the carriers and general contractors that lead the industry. Middle men beware: if these tower dogs ever become self aware, it will not bode well for any of you or for those above you that hired you to milk a system dry that once flowed money downward like Niagara Falls on those willing to risk their lives because none other would.
I absolutely loved this book, being a tower hand myself. I feel it embodies what we do in a very fair, objective, yet passionate way that few could ever give justice. Thank you, Doug!
If you, oh meticulous review reader, have any doubts as to the validity of the contents of this book, or the investment of time that would be devoted to the reading of it; know that it is correct and will not be time wasted. In the same way the character Johanna Stayton in Overboard gained new perspective, this rendition should offer you a different perspective from one you may have developed from what you've seen on TV, or only guessed at.
