“Walkable City” is a fantastic new book by Jeff Speck on creating great cities and overcoming dated planning ideas. For anyone interested in making more pedestrian, bicycle and transit oriented spaces it is a must read. It is also a must read for anyone interested in what it takes to make your city “feel” better… or making places a better place to live. Jeff Speck was a co-author of “suburban Nation” a few years back… also a great book. I recommend this book to city council’s, bike/ped advocates, and city planners.
