's review

liked it

I used this book for a college-level composition course with the theme of community. Oldenburg's observations (some still ring true today and some don't) certainly gave us something to talk about, but I think we all agreed that we could have edited out 100 pages or so. Oldenburg seems to like the sound of his voice. Still, three stars for overall concept and such a thorough explanation of The Third Place.
