Jeff Speck has dedicated his career to determining what makes cities thrive. And he has boiled it down to one key factor: walkability.
Making downtown into a walkable, viable community is the essential fix for the

typical American city; it is eminently achievable and its benefits are manifold. Walk-

able City―bursting with sharp observations and key insights into how urban change

happens―lays out a practical, necessary, and inspiring vision for how to make American

cities great again.
