From the writer behind SUBURBAN NATION and THE SMART GROWTH MANUAL comes the book every planner and planning activist must read

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

"Truly a book that is so very needed, Walkable City moves theory into action. We now know we need to build walkable urban places for all sorts of economic, social, and environmental reasons. Jeff Speck shows how to do it in the same clear style we came to love in the classic Suburban Nation." -Christopher B. Leinberger, visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution and author of The Option of Urbanism
"Companionable and disarmingly candid, Jeff Speck perches on your shoulder and gets you to see your community with fresh eyes. He gradually builds a compelling case for walkability as the essential distillation of a vast trove of knowledge about urbanism and placemaking. The case he makes has you both nodding at the intuitive and seemingly obvious wisdom presented, and shaking your head at why those basic principles of fixing our cities have eluded us for so long." -Harriet Tregoning, founder of the National Smart Growth Network
