Single most influential book: The Death and Life…

JJ_DeathLife.jpgIf anyone came to me and asked me for only one book that would help them understand city planning, I’d easily say you’ve got to read The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs. That book alone will change your views on how to best plan our cities. It’s that influential. The book was written in 1960’s and the observations still hold true today. The book is kinda dense reading, though. Not something you’d read quickly.
