A great book for teaching planning students about urban design and a helpful tool for introducing citizens to the importance of good design. The book is essential reading for planners, city managers, and other public administrators who need to understand design principles to defend their commuinities against well-intentioned-even attractive-but nevertheless damaging projects.
