Beats a dead horse, and not even the right one.
on September 6, 2011
The authors have made up their mind to hate everything suburban, and do all they can to decry anything associated with the suburbs. For example, they love to deride the cul-de-sac, even doing so in the description. Cul-de-sacs serve a number of very important purposes, the most important of which is safety. There is a reason that urban areas block off street ends to turn them in to effective cul-de-sacs!
In the end, this book ends up being targeted towards urban suburban-haters, telling them what they want to hear. Probably a great read for them. Too many obvious holes to the rest of us. And to make it worse, they take 300 pages to get across what could have been done in 50.
