"[Good Urbanism] is one of a small set of books that go beyond the problem of determining what is desired in our urban environment and instead sets forth an agenda for how to achieve good urbanism."
--Journal of Planning Education and Research
"Ellin has provided a much needed roadmap for achieving the kinds of places that urbanists aspire to create. She traces the route in six carefully delineated steps to destinations composed of vibrant, mixed use and well-connected metropolitan regions, cities, neighborhoods and blocks. Good Urbanism shows the way."
--Eugenie Birch, Nussdorf Professor of Urban Research, University of Pennsylvania
"Good Urbanism is a strong addition to any collection focusing on urban planning and policy, much recommended."
--Midwest Book Review
"Ellin ably bridges the divide between theoretical vision and practical reality that has seen many great ideas for our communities fall short in the past... Experienced urban planners and practitioners and novice urbanists alike will find several new instruments in Good Urbanism to add to their toolkits. These will help enhance the health and well-being of our places and move beyond sustainability to a path towards prosperity."
..".the passion and relentlessly up-beat manner in which Ellin makes her case is refreshing, and reading Good Urbanism is undoubtedly a rewarding experience..."
"This book is a must read, now more than ever, for city planners, urban designers and architects as they vie to make cities around the world pleasanter habitats for their residents and visitors."
--Jon Lang, Emeritus Professor, University of New South Wales, Sydney
