    In a year seemingly overflowing with bad news reading a book filled with hopeful ideas for how societies can grow together is a wonderful breath of fresh air With a very 'non technical' take on urban planning only a page or two for each idea Green allows the focus of the text to shift to the outcomes for communities are people happier do they have access are they utilizing resources efficiently? The spaces we exist in help to define our sense of happiness and contentment The message from this book is that no matter if it is top down or bottom up there are many things which can and are being done to improve the function and form of our communities in a sustainable manner
