What reading level is Personal Reminiscences of James Mapes Dodge book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

In diameter, 90 ft. High, with vertical retaining walls 17 ft. High (see Fig. 4). Now the pressure exerted by anthracite coal is about one-third of water pressure when the coal is level with the top of the wall, and fully one-half of water pressure when the wall is surcharged, and the structure necessary to take care of this pressure loomed up as one involving prohibitive expense. Imagine a boiler 246 ft. In diameter with a pressure of 510 Ibs. Per sq. Ft. , and you will get some idea of the st...ructural problem involved. But Mr. Dodge decided to make the coal sustain the wall, and while it seems paradoxical to say that the material that causes the pres- sure can be made to sustain that pressure, yet that is exactly what his scheme contemplated. The illustration, Fig. 5, shows a section of the building and illustrates the use of the anchor band which solved the problem in very simple and economic fashion. The band is circular and is suspended about 30 ft. Inside of the retaining walls.
