The content from our popular Curbside Chat program put into a booklet formatted specifically for public officials and change advocates. "Our problem was not, and is not, a lack of growth. Our problem is sixty years of unproductive growth. The American pattern of development does not create real wealth; it creates the illusion of wealth. Today we are in the process of seeing that illusion destroyed and with it the prosperity we have come to take for granted."
This thoroughly-researched book contains extensive quotes and background on Strong Towns and its founder, Charles Marohn.
Jeff Speck includes quotes from Charles Marohn and the Confessions of a Recovering Engineer essay in tis book. Speck was interviewed on the Strong Towns podcast about Walkable City.
