The Cloudbase Chronicles is the memoir of Harry Budge, resident chief engineer of John Hancock Center in Chicago. In addition to being one the worlds most recognized structures, John Hancock center is home to some of the loftiest homes in North America. John Hancock Center, affectionately known as "Big John" to Chicagoans, was one of the first truly self contained luxury communities in the world. As chief engineer for the residential portion of the building, Harry Budge experienced a truly unique lifestyle. Part engineer-part supervisor-part personal valet, he shares his humorous, occasionally somber encounters with his staff and his neighbors and his employers. Additionally, the reader will learn what makes a skyscraper like John Hancock Center tick.
