The first part contains some very acute analysis, but is now showing its age badly. One has to wonder if Ms Jacob’s vision of city centres packed with a mixture of small tradesmen, tourists and home-owners is gone for ever, however desirable it may be. On that basis I did not pursue the remainder of the book on recommendations for achieving her preferred state.

I reread this book after a many year interval to see how it would hold up to changed circumstances and increased scrutiny. It doesn't hod up very well, I'm afraid. Far too long. Mostly common sense, but not necessarily true, and not testable. Contradictory and tautological. And today's street users are focused on their gadgets, not other users, so the premise is false.
