"Tactical urbanism is a brilliant way to jumpstart ambitious change by letting people experience a different future. That is part of what makes this book one of this century's most valuable guides for urban changemakers."--Carol Coletta, VP/Community and National Initiatives, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation "Cities, city-makers, and citizens would be smart to add the mindset and skills of tactical urbanism to their tool belt. Mike and Anthony's book, better than any other source, shows how."--Brent Toderian, city planning and advanced urbanism consultant; former chief planner for Vancouver, British Columbia "Urban planning is a task that encompasses many layers, but one can never forget that the urban scale has to be connected to the human scale. In Tactical Urbanism, Lydon and Garcia highlight this fundamental relationship, showing through well researched and illustrated examples that simplicity is a key method to positively transform our cities."--Jaime Lerner, former mayor of Curitiba, Brazil and author of "Urban Acupuncture" "Our cities need to change, fast. Tactical Urbanism is a guided tour of solutions created when local people decide they can't wait for politics to catch up before they improve their neighborhoods. This weathervane book deserves a place on any urbanist's bookshelf."--Alex Steffen, author of "Carbon Zero: Imagining Cities That Can Save the Planet"
