Want a preview of the bestseller? Check out the review from Mark Kingwell in the Globe and Mail and the Guardian‘s Fred Pearce’s take:

This may be the best popular book on cities since Jane Jacobs’s The Death and Life of Great American Cities half a century ago. Certainly, it shares the same optimism about human aspiration amid overcrowded buildings and unplanned urban jungles, and the same plea for planners to help rather than stifle those dreams.
