Looking forward to the release of this book. It will be interesting to find out how Portland was able to radically transform itself without spending a lot of money. What works there, should work elsewhere too. The book also describes the failures, so that others do not make the same mistakes.
Speaking of which, Pedaling Revolution by Jeff Mapes is another "must read" that goes into how change is taking place all over the country. Pedaling Revolution is already available.
