Timely and important, a delightful, insightful, irreverent work . . . Should be required reading. --The Christian Science Monitor

A Best Book of the Year according to Planetizen and the American Society of Landscape Architects

Jeff Speck has dedicated his career to determining what makes cities thrive. And he has boiled it down to one key factor: walkability.
Making downtown into a walkable, viable community is the essential fix for the

typical American city; it is eminently achievable and its benefits are manifold. Walk-

able City--bursting with sharp observations and key insights into how urban change

happens--lays out a practical, necessary, and inspiring vision for how to make American

cities great again.
