"Wolfe provides something rare in contemporary urbanist writing—rich illustrations and examples from real life—both historical and current. His writing about the past and the future of urban form offers readers inspiration, historical context, and a better understanding of how a sustainable, inviting urban environment is created."

"Nicely put. If you like thinking about the intersection of people and place, you may like this attractively priced book a great deal."
NRDC's The Switchboard blog

"Readers will come away motivated to find, experience and document their own favourite places and find ways to apply effortless urbanism in their own neighbourhood."

"...a book of inspiration and aspiration. It makes the reader yearn for places with soul."
Better Cities & Towns

"...a great ground-level look at how neighborhoods and communities can foster flourishing life in the city."
Can't Catch My Breath

"The jargon-free text makes this book a good option for anyone, but the substance of the message could make for academic reading as well. I enjoyed reading this book for its vignettes of urban living from around the world."
