"At moments the book evokes Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language; at other times, it reads like aphorisms from a TED Talk; and yet at other times, it is reminiscent of desk crits in school....The authors use jargon-free language [to] demystify urban design...a good reminder that much of what we, as designers, take as self-evident can be new to those not steeped in urban design and that complex concepts can be communicated in a clear, concise way. --Architecture Boston
