New Book Asks the Big Question: Does Planning Work?

The Planning Game, a new book by Alexander Garvin, promises to be a strong argument for planning as a force for positive, progressive change. The book will feature with 200 “colorful photographs, diagrams, and maps” created for the book (new maps and diagrams are always a hit). Here is how the W.W. Norton press release describes the book’s method: “The book covers planning at every level, explaining the activities that go into successfully transforming a community as exemplified by four cities and their colorful motive forces: Paris (Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann), New York (Robert Moses), Chicago (Daniel Burnham), and Philadelphia (Edmund Bacon).”

The book isn’t publishing until March 11, but publisher W.W. Norton is offering a pre-sale discount. To receive 20 percent off the list price, enter promotion code PLANNING during checkout at the W.W. Norton website. The special offer ends February 28.
