How to create the world's new urban future

With the majority of the world's population shifting to urban centres, urban planning—the practice of land-use and transportation planning to help shape cities structurally, economically, and socially—has become an increasingly vital profession. In Urban Planning For Dummies, readers will get a practical overview of this fascinating field, including studying community demographics, determining the best uses for land, planning economic and transportation development, and implementing plans. Following an introductory course on urban planning, this book is key reading for any urban planning student or anyone involved in urban development.

With new studies conclusively demonstrating the dramatic impact of urban design on public psychological and physical health, the impact of the urban planner on a community is immense. And with a wide range of positions for urban planners in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors—including law firms, utility companies, and real estate development firms—having a fundamental understanding of urban planning is key to anyone even considering entry into this field. This book provides a useful introduction and lays the groundwork for serious study.

  • Helps readers understand the essentials of this complex profession
  • Written by a certified practicing urban planner, with extensive practical and community-outreach experience

For anyone interested in being in the vanguard of building, designing, and shaping tomorrow's sustainable city, Urban Planning For Dummies offers an informative, entirely accessible introduction on learning how.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good introductory book 11 septembre 2012

I admit that I purchased this book for its cover. As a professional city planner, with 25+ years experience, I thought it would make an interesting talking point lying around in my office! However, upon reading through it, I was impressed by the range of topics that were included, and especially how clearly some concepts were defined. This would be a great book for a new Planning Commissioner or someone thinking about a career in Urban Planning. It is concise and well written.

Urban Planning For Dummies is an excellect introduction to the arts and science of Urban planning for both the layman and the undergraduate student. It is written in clear prose, comprehensive in nature and a good reference to have close at hand for discussions with the public. The language is simple but does not talk down to the reader, it is full of references and useful internet links.

Awesome! Encyclopedic! Simply written and understood! Thank you Jordan yin!

A valuable source of review for the students of all levels and backgrounds, design and building professionals, as well as the people of all ages who are constantly searching to simply understand the ever-expanding perimeters of “Urban Planning” vs. the 21st century urban living complexites!

I highly recommend it for anyone who is "simply" interested to learn-and-know about all aspects of “Urban Planning,” today!
