I got this for a college course. Unlike some of my other books, really enjoyed this one. Was up to date and was filled with great info younwouldnt find elsewhere.

A great book to introduce you to the world of urban planning. I especially like the real world examples and his aversion to overly philosophical arguments for the way things should be done (I've found a few other books to be almost unbearable for that reason). Levy writes like he is telling a story, making it the most pleasurable textbook I've every read cover to cover. Highly recommend.

I reviewed this book for possible use in undergraduate city planning course. The book is currently in wide use for such course s. Provides good overview of origins of city planning, its role in post-war land use development, and the social, political, and economic forces supporting or constraining this role.

This book is a great complement to a class, but more importantly this book really could stand alone without an instructor guiding you along. The examples and step break-down allow students to practice the methology without having to rely on any other resources.

Many books require the use of other resources or a course. This did not.

One of the few assigned books I kept reading after the class ended. Interesting narrative history lessons about why cities are arranged the way they are. Updated to include the 2008 recession.

Great look at planning as a profession. Very comprehensive account of planning history, complexity and connectivity, to society, government, and non-government organizations. It covers what every aspiring planner should know about the profession. A foundational pillar for appropriately designing the urban environment.
