Jane Jacobs is a powerful symbol for present-day urbanist movements, but her work is about far more than just building walkable places.

Strong Towns explores the hard-hitting realities of Jane Jacobs’ activism: the need for financial solvency in American towns, her insistence on local decision-making instead of top-down proclamations and her “chaotic but smart” approach to improving cities."

 If Jane Jacobs' writing is your bible, then Strong Towns should be your church.
