User Review  - Gabe Kalmuss-Katz - Goodreads

An interesting book on how people perceive cities and what effect that perception has on how people use public space. Focuses on even more concrete measures than Death and Life... such as street and highway design and the role of lanscape architecture in shaping a city. certainly worth a read. Read full review
