Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a massively interesting, 5-star book in terms of content. But APA Press has no idea how to print anything readable. The font is sans serif, meant for a brochure or a computer screen, not a 300-page book. Making matters worse, the type is also surprisingly faint and small. A non-serif font printed in small, faint type means this book is surprisingly hard to read. (I tested this out with my partner. He handed the book immediately back to me and told me trying to read the print made him feel dizzy.) The worst part is APA refuses to make this book series available in e-book format. (It's the same thing--and the same awful font--with the next book in the series, Planning Chicago, which was an unnecessary chore to read, as well.) Style over substance is obnoxious when you're paying thirty bucks for a paperback. It's 2015. E-book format is not optional anymore. All in all, just a needlessly obnoxious experience of a good book.

Book arrived on time and as advertised. Our City's Planning Division staff intends to use it as a reference in our department library.
