    1. This is an important book for bike advocates and complete streets enthusiast. It is the other side of the coin asking critical questions that need to be asked about the shape of cities in the coming years? Is TOD, Complete streets and bike paths really a tool for displacement and gentrification? This book doesn't answer those questions directly, instead it questions the use of these tools and how its impacts cities. A must read for urban planners in every field.
