Summary: Draws on experiences and data from a range of cities and countries around the globe in making the case for city planning that moves beyond mobility. Cervero, Guerra, and Al contend that prioritizing the needs and aspirations of people and the creation of great places is as important, if not more important, than expediting movement. The authors provide an optimistic outlook about the potential to transform places for the better and they celebrate the growing demand for a shift in global thinking around place and mobility in creating better communities, environments, and economies. --Adapted from publisher description.
