    This book has been a huge influence in my life as a resident of Okotoks and now, living in the inner city of Calgary.

    The author should have gone back to being a physicists. There was a lot of dribble with no sources to back up claims. For example, Fodor talked about ecological land is beneficial but how? Not explained. How did he come up with the quantity of ecological land needed for each person's consumption? Not explained. How can India support a large population with relatively little use of land? Not explained. Any comments given for supporting more land regulation is simply: feelings of "ugly" land use ( The author should have gone back to being a physicists.

Not explained. Any comments given for supporting more land regulation is simply: feelings of "ugly" land use (basically anything that the author disagrees with). There were also many quotes from books that have no relation to urban planning at all. Well tough luck, nature will not allow humans to survive if we don't adapt to it by improving it to accommodate our needs. I was hoping to learn more about planning but I've learnt nothing other than "primitive Buddhists have amazing planning" despite being completely stagnated and isolated, at the brink of starvation.

    This is one of the most absurd theories I've read in some time. Basically isolationist, as presented this concept of stopping growth completely ignores the population surge that the world has been experiencing for well over a century. Sure, this is likely targeted at a few Oregon communities but this has little value to the rest of the world. I would ask the author to visit some of the communities that have indeed stopped growth - Detroit and East St. Louis for instance - to see how beneficial a This is one of the most absurd theories I've read in some time.
