Book Review of Walking Home on Planetizen | June 7, 2011

IUS Research Associate Michael Dudley’s book review of Ken Greenberg’s new book “Walking Home” is featured at the urban planning website Planetizen. Dudley writes,

“Ken Greenberg’s Walking Home: The Life and Lessons of a City Builder…is an eloquent, personal, compelling and persuasive argument for more enlightened city-building, made all the more convincing by the Toronto-based author’s 30 years of international experience as an urban designer and architect. At once a memoir, a history of North American urban planning and a manifesto for a more sustainable and humane urban future, Walking Home articulates the urgent need for change while providing his colleagues and interested laypersons alike practical and entertaining guidance for bringing it about.”
