Clearly demonstrates the specific characteristics that make for comprehensible, friendly and controllable places; 'Responsive Environments' - as opposed to the alienating environments often imposed today.

This is a practical book about architecture and urban design.

It is most concerned with the areas of design which most frequently go wrong and impresses the idea that ideals alone are not enough.
