This book was a breath of fresh air when I first read it.
Not only does it outline the compelling argument on why the personal automobile has had such a negative effect on those societies which have made it the centre of their transport design, it also offers an excellent reference design of a truly car free city.
Highly recommended for anyone who has any interest in urban design.
It truly makes you believe it is possible!
