Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tactical Urbanism: Short-Term Actions for Long-Term Change is a valuable text for citizens, public-sector planners, and developers alike. The book is easy to read, clear, and is all about action—something you can’t say about many planning-oriented texts."
, Better Cities & Towns

"Tactical Urbanism is a clarion call for citizen action, offering a cornucopia of examples and well-illustrated by photographs of how to effect lasting change through small but incremental steps toward building cities for communities rather than isolated individuals."
, New York Journal of Books

"[An] enthusiastic volume… Tactical Urbanism serves as a how-to guide for activists who want to get in on the action…. [a] practical framework for envisioning and executing tactical urbanism projects… It is, basically, the class you never took in design school."
, California Planning & Development Report

"The book provides permission for engaged community members to become key actors in the transformation of their neighborhoods."
, Spacing

"Tactical Urbanism serves as a how-to guide for activists who want to get in on the action. There's not a lot of theorizing in Tactical Urbanism, which is probably for the best. Surely future scholars will have a field day with the trends that planners, and citizen-planners, are exploring today. Nowhere are ideas like Henri Lefebvre's 'right to the city' more in question than when citizens take planning into their own hands. For now, though, everyone seems to be rolling up their sleeves and getting out the sidewalk chalk."
, Planetizen

"Our cities need to change, fast. Tactical Urbanism is a guided tour of solutions created when local people decide they can't wait for politics to catch up before they improve their neighborhoods. This weathervane book deserves a place on any urbanist's bookshelf."
-- Alex Steffen, author of "Carbon Zero: Imagining Cities That Can Save the Planet"

"This book is a shrewd, generous, timely and sometimes thrilling call-to-action that should be compulsory reading for anyone impatient to remake his or her city."
, Slowottawa

"With Tactical Urbanism, Lydon and Garcia offer expert insight and guidance into how to use this fundamental approach across a broad spectrum of cities and communities to enhance and revitalize city life."
, Congress for the New Urbanism

"Tactical Urbanism goes beyond impatience to offer ideas for a partial alternative."
, Planning

"Tactical Urbanism is a book that will help your community organize into proactive changes."
, Restless Urbanist
