Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The knowledge of the author, hats off. The timeline way in which author delivered his own inputs to the practical world of urban planning is stupendous. I am sure, after reading this book you will have a distinct view to plan a city/region/metropolis. The best thing is that the chapters include crystal-clearly defined concepts of sustainability, EWS housing, and public transport strategies. Just buy it at any cost since authors and books like these are rarely found.
