Top 10 Planning Books Of The Year

The editors of Planetizen have released their annual list of the best books in planning. Find out which titles made our must-read list for 2006.

The 2007 edition of Planetizen Top 10 Book List is our sixth annual compilation of the best urban planning and planning-related titles published during a calendar year. The selected books, published in 2006, cover a broad range of issues that encapsulate some of the most talked about issues in planning this year, and provide anyone interested in cities with some of the best thinking and analysis on topics ranging from congestion pricing and car use to gentrification and urban sprawl.

With so many excellent titles published this year, it was an especially difficult proposition to select ten books for our list. Along with the top ten books, we have included three additional useful publications that are worthy of mention.
