The perfect holiday gift for your friends and family

Searching for the perfect holiday gift for that hard-to-shop-for friend or family member? Strong Towns has you covered! Our new book, Thoughts on Building Strong Towns, Volume II makes a great gift. Whether you give it to someone who's fascinated with transportation and planning, or someone who's never heard the term "stroad," we think they'll find something to learn here. Even if they're not a big reader; the book's essay format makes it an easy piece to jump into. 

Thoughts on Building Strong Towns, Volume II is a chance to share the top essays published on our website in 2015, reworked and compiled into compelling chapters including, “Can you be an engineer and speak out for reform?” “Dealing with Congestion,” and “My Car Pays Cheaper Rent Than Me.” Also included are sections on Strong Towns’ ongoing campaigns, #NoNewRoads and #SlowtheCars. The book features writing from Strong Towns’ president, Charles Marohn, as well as several Strong Towns contributors.


And, while it's not a necessary in order to enjoy Volume II, a copy of Thoughts on Building Strong Towns, Volume I  would also make a great addition to the gift box, for the reader who really wants to dive into the Strong Towns message.
