PITTSBURGH -- A new book is taking a specific approach to highlighting the city of Pittsburgh's most memorable people, places and things.

Pittsburgh native and longtime journalist Paul King is focusing on the most iconic people, places and things in his just released book, "Iconic Pittsburgh" from The History Press.

From Andrew Carnegie to August Wilson, The Cathedral of Learning to The Strip District and The Gulf Tower to the Terrible Towel, King, now a transplanted Pittsburgher living in Vermont, narrowed his list to 30 chapters, making for a concise historical reference on the Steel City.

King recently appeared on "Issues on the Point" to discuss his research and motivation for the book, how he narrowed the list and other follow-up projects he is working on.

Find "Iconic Pittsburgh" at area Barnes & Nobles stores.
