Confessions of a Recovering Engineer – book review

Confessions of a Recovering Civil Engineer: Transportation for a Strong TownConfessions of a Recovering Civil Engineer: Transportation for a Strong Town by Charles L Marohn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished reading an advanced copy of this book and it is an excellent follow up to Charles' first book - Strong Towns. There is a lot of information out there about how we can improve our communities and neighborhoods. So much in fact, that even for a practicing residential architect, it can sometimes be overwhelming. While this book is written from the perspective of an engineer, the information presented in the book; about what we've done wrong (see "stroads"), in how we can organize our communities around streets, and what we can do right; is accessible to everyone. This is a great resource for those wondering why their communities aren't currently functioning well and what they can do right now to start making meaningful change in their city, town, and neighborhood.
