bookshelves: 2014, library
Read from October 19 to 20, 2014

Moves jerkily through time and space, and loosely organized, this is ultimately pro-urban propaganda lacking a balanced critique of the city as human achievement or enough research to inform the reader what a city should be. Basically, an incredibly wordy coffee table book. Disappointing, given the promise of the jacket blurb.
