Walking Home: The Life and Lessons of a City BuilderWalking Home: The Life and Lessons of a City Builder by Ken Greenberg

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you like Jane Jacobs you'll probably like Ken Greenberg, the implementation to Jacobs' theory. While this book is particularly resonant if you live in Toronto, where Greenberg has lived and worked for decades, it's full of fascinating anecdotes of city building (failed and successful) all over the world. Very inspiring to those of us who love cities and want them to keep working.
