A History of NYC Rats (with Two Free Chapters)

I will be in New York City tomorrow and for the next few days.

In honor of that, let me offer up a free read from "Rats: Observations on the History & Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants" by Robert Sullivan.

This is a book about the rats of New York City, including profiles of rat catchers, rat biology, rat history, and other odd bits. A good read, if not quite a complete history of one the world's most important animals.

The first two chapters of the book can be readhere. This is a 12-page PDF.

Order the book new from hereor from if you are looking for a used edition.
