Disappointing read, 22 Sept. 2013
Over witten, all 179 pages should probably be condensed down to about 60 which would then we worth reading. The language is sometimes inaccessible and the writing style bizarre, for example, paragraph one: Tell you 'something', paragraph two: Tell you why this 'something' isn't useful, paragraph 3: reiterate the 'something' from paragraph 1. Had high hope for this book in writing a thesis on the importance of history in urban planning and have been bitterly disappointed.
