I read this book for a class and after the first chapter I was hooked, it's written very well and is INTERESTING(which we all know is very rare with textbooks!). The book is extremely realistic and objective; it does not try to convince you to support sustainability or buy into any liberal agenda. It describes the reasoning behind why some cities are pursuing sustainability and literally, how serious these cities appear to be about their pursuits. I read this book for a public administration class but this would be an awesome book for anyone interested in urban planning, environmental policy or social equity. Love this book, highly recommend.
