"Written with clarity. . . . In times of disillusion with technology and its promises, it’s important to remember that we are responsible for setting the rules on how it will be employed. We must reclaim an active, vigilant role to prevent its abuse, all the while we continue to imagine ways of putting it to work for the human cause. In that sense, we may need at least a bit of The City of Tomorrow’s optimism."—Antonio Vazquez Brust, EPB: Urban Anaytics and City Science
"This is different. And it is brilliant. Ratti and Claudel give us a distinctive path to think through technical futures, far removed from the typical exaggerated versions of the present. They start with a fact: we are all enmeshed in distributed sensing ecosystems, and the more complex and intractable those systems, the more technical innovations we can think up. Thus the messy city, not the perfect lab, is ground zero."—Saskia Sassen, Columbia University, author of Expulsions
"Ratti and Claudel provide remarkable insights into the city of tomorrow. A book that everyone who is interested in the future—and that is all of us—should explore."—Michael Batty, University College London

passing every other sentence is a loaded and bloated statement about the human species and our history. Reading for a class, otherwise avoid at all costs.
