    Suburban sprawl and its ills as the American way of life

    If you want to understand how suburban sprawl became THE living arrangement in America and why it is one without a future, read this book. Kunstler writes vividly and with passion. He helps us understand why our physical environment is so depressing and inhumane, how it came to pass, and what we can do to fix it (hint: build walkable communities). He identifies clearly what's wrong and gives us a language to talk about it (the "nature band-aids" around wide avenues and highways).

    An angry bias synopses of our american made landscape

    I read this book for a class I'm taking. This is the thesis statement I came up with. The ruinous pattern of demolishing small towns, consequent communities and main streets with replacing them with hidious urban sprawls, superhighways, and parking lots has caused many problems over time.
