From the Back Cover

PRAISE FOR STRONG TOWNS

"Sometimes, in our depleted and cynical times, one hears 'Well then, what is your genius plan? ' Here it is, finally, with extraordinary force and clarity: a genius plan."
―ANDRES DUANY, author of Suburban Nation and founder of the Congress for the New Urbanism

"Rebuilding our cities, towns, suburbs, and communities won't be easy. But Marohn shows us a way to a better future, driven bottom-up by our many and varied strong towns. Marohn has written the playbook for rebuilding our communities. A must-read for mayors, city builders, urbanists, and all of us who want to live in and create stronger, more vibrant, and inclusive places."
―RICHARD FLORIDA, author of The Rise of the Creative Class, The Great Reset, and The New Urban Crisis

"Charles Marohn brings the same incisive creativity to Strong Towns that citizens and city leaders alike must bring to their communities."
―JANETTE SADIK-KHAN, Bloomberg Associates, former NYC Transportation Commissioner, author of Street Fight

"Charles's genuine passion, his spot-on observations, and clear insights make the case as to why we need a bottom-up revolution to rebuild American prosperity that will compel us to rethink how to make places more livable, sustainable, and prosperous."
―MITCHELL J. SILVER, past president of the American Planning Association

"Somewhere between Small is Beautiful and Cities and The Wealth of Nations can be found the gem of Strong Towns, our current moment's most cogent, practical, and necessary response to the problem of urban economics."
―JEFF SPECK, author of Walkable City and Walkable City Rules

"A cogent call to rethink our faith in and commitment to unbridled and sprawling growth as the solution to challenges faced by our nation's cities and towns."
―PATRICE FREY, President and CEO of the National Main Street Center --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
