Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk lead a firm that has designed more than 200 new neighborhoods and community revitalization plans, most famously, Seaside, Florida. Jeff Speck is director of town planning for the firm. This book will have a permanent role in the understanding of where we have been, and where we are going. It's necessary, and even important reading, but it's not a blueprint for all planning issues.

Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream. by Andres Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, and Jeff Speck. For a decade, Suburban Nation has given voice to a growing movement in North America to put an end to suburban sprawl and replace the last century's automobile-based settlement patterns with a return to more traditional planning. Founders of the Congress for the New Urbanism, Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk are at the forefront of the movement, and even their critics, such as Fred Barnes in The Weekly Standard, recognized that "Suburban Nation is likely to become this movement's bible.

Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk. The debate between planning and urbanism has also continued and even accentuated in recent years mostly due to the rise of New Urbanism ( Duany et a. 2001) and Landscape Urbanism (Waldheim, 2016). What and how to teach has changed slightly depending on regional nuances and national sensibilities.

A lively lament about the failures of postwar planning, this is also that rare book that offers solutions: "an essential handbook" (San Francisco Chronicle).

This tenth anniversary edition includes a new preface by the authors.

It hurts to live. That's how I would sum up reading this book. The more books I read, the more it is apparent that everything about our lives is completely backwards, either by design or by many good intentions gone awry. This book is an eye-opening read that reveals the harmful nature of American suburban sprawl. It's not just criticism either; it provides tested and proven methods to create better living environments and should serve as a guideline to build a physical foundation for American community. This book should be required reading for every American. Despite its nonfiction status, it reads very easily and the authors frequently make it entertaining (probably a good thing to chuckle; if you were raised in suburbia, this book could make you view your upbringing with new discomfort).

This book has, and will continue to have, continuing validity as America seeks more sustainable solutions for its suburban culture. The post WW II suburban American pattern....the "American Dream" of the 20th Century....is based upon the notion of separating all uses from one another, and then connecting them by roads. It's an incredibly expensive, energy consumptive, desensitizing, and ultimately unsustainable way to live. It's a culture that's entrenched in voting patterns, politics, government, and in the development, building, and investment communities.

The antidote is not fully covered here, but Duany is clear that it calls for nothing less than a complete re-commitment to traditional building patterns, of denser cities, and towns, and villages, and hamlets. It posits these as models for a happier, wiser, and more sustainable future. Today's American suburbs are neither urban enough, or rural enough. Planning and design solutions that enhance, instead of destroy, both the urban and the rural, will be requirements of the future.

This book will have a permanent role in the understanding of where we have been, and where we are going. It's necessary, and even important reading, but it's not a blueprint for all planning issues. The comprehensive challenges, which we face, will also call for a revolution in thinking for agriculture, and for the natural environment....both, also in crisis....and both, not fully considered, in this book.

One of the best books I've read this year. Lots of things that I've
noticed over the years about places I like and don't like were summarized
and expounded upon. I hadn't quite realized the effect traffic
engineering has had on city design.

I felt that it really elucidated a lot of why people are really unhappy
with their homes, lives, and communities.

This book is extensively footnoted with lots of data to back up opinions.
There is a huge bibliography into which I'm delving.

However, where it ventures into the social and political realm, it is
less effective and borders on being one-sided and polemic.
In one example, the authors state that GM and others
killed streetcars in 50 cities to get people to take cars rather
than public transport. If you look into this a little deeper, you'll
discover that it was probably more to promote their buses, and that the
truth was a lot more complicated than that. Look up "Great American
Streetcar Scandal" at wikipedia.

Identifies important factors leading to sprawl in an easy to read and understand format. Even though this book is over a decade old, the factors contributing to sprawl have not changed. Unfortunately, the policies that contribute to sprawl haven't changed either.

As a resident of Northern Virginia, we live with the consequences described in "Suburban Nation" -- insufferable gridlocked traffic, lack of alternative transportation -- a patchwork attempt at resolving these issues does not work. Our County Governments continue to permit low density housing without adequate proffers or designs described in this book. Frustrating to see in action, when the guidelines pointed out are so obvious, easy to follow and in the end, cheaper for the developer.

A definite read for any County or City Commission. A very thought provoking book.

The authors do an excellent job of both outlining ways to develop that do not induce sprawl, promote neighborhoods, and encourage people to both create and live in places that are the antithesis of sprawl. I appreciated their anecdotes and stories about things that have worked, good ideas that failed, and bad ideas that failed in an epic manner.

They are clear to show examples of how unintended consequences have derailed previous idealistic methods of combating sprawl, as well as examples of how (typically their) ideas have successfully fought sprawl. Adding parking to streets - slows down traffic - makes the area livable again. Who would have thought!?

All in all, an excellent history of why we live in sprawl, how we can work against it, and a great book for developers and architects to understand that their business doesn't have to be all suburban office park & subdivision focused.

This book has plenty of information on what went wrong in building our communities and what can be done to make them better. I'd suggest this book if you are interested in urban design and architecture. Duany makes a compelling case for a better development of cities reducing the waste of space and allowing people to be the protagonist of the urban landscape instead of the cars.

This is an important read, and the book's message is interesting. The authors' use of hard facts and examples of successful and unsuccessful development make this a good read, but the kindle version has quite a few transcription errors that occasionally detract from grasping the authors' intended meaning.
