"Cities for Life is recommended reading for all who are trying to gain better insight into urban studies, urban governance and urban living, like academicians, practitioners, social scientists and researchers, and especially those with an interest in the relationship between urban governance and mental health or community recovery and realities of Inclusive Planning through a participatory approach."
-- "Cities and Health"

"Cities for Life amplifies community voices, capacities, and rich local ingenuity that need to be harnessed and incorporated into policy and practice. Following the increasing urbanization of poverty and associated health losses, this book is a must read for researchers, students, policy makers and practitioners."--Blessing Uchenna Mberu, Head of Urbanization and Wellbeing Unit, African Population and Health Research Center

"Corburn's messaging that 'human health happens in neighborhoods and communities not just in the doctor's office' is a crucial reckoning for the health equity movement. His focus on storytelling and historical place-making creates a compelling context for contemporary on-the-ground action. Cities for Life should be required reading for policymakers and activists in urban planning, public health, and environmental justice."--Peggy M. Shepard, co-founder and executive director, WE ACT for Environmental Justice
