This book represents the most comprehensive evaluation of current trends in urban development and planning. It offers an over-arching strategy for creating more sustainable places to live. I highly recommend this book to all those interested in seeking comprehensive solutions to the ills of urban growth.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Chen Chen on December 21, 2007
Format: Paperback
The scholarly work in this area has evolved a lot during the ten years since this book was published. If you are interested in the early history and development, this is a good choice. If you want to learn what can be done to improve your community's sustainability, however, this is not it -you'll be disappointed. Read "Taking sustainable cities seriously" by Portney (2004) instead. More inspiring and useful examples in there.
