It gets 3 stars but not for the validity of its content. Corbusier helped shape urban planning in a most disasterous way - abandoned in the West by the mid-70s (except France) and in the East only with the fall of Communism. An important read to understand a post-WW2 approach to the massive relocation and emplacement of people in an urban setting. In counterbalance, read Huxtable and Mumford - even Ebeneezer Howard.
