Format: Paperback
This is a must read for anyone interested in the design of public space. Gehl reports on solid research and frames information for designers to use. Other solid works on the topic include People Places and Squares: a public place design guide.

Jan, through this book has taught a generation of Architects, including myself, how to design for vibrant cities by designing for people. The book demonstrates the rules of good city design simply, effectively and convincingly. It is full of passion for the subject yet written like a friend it talking to you. Accessible and brilliant - a must have for any urban designer.

Format: Paperback
Too many communities focus only on the architecture of buildings and forget that we experience good cities in the streets and plazas. Jan Gehl properly shifts that focus to the "Life Between Buildings" and gives good, practical comments on how to design these places so people will use them. Overall an excellent book.
