This book is a mash up of way too many metaphors. It is vague and confused. He lost me when giving prescriptions on how to reduce "terrorism" without defining the term - unwittingly political. The author appears to be too much of a city-planning specialist, and not enough of a generalist, to speak on such wide ranging topics. Had to stop listening after the first chapter. Would much rather learn the history of city ecology without conflating with musical temperament.
Having just returned from Lisbon and hearing its history shared by a thirty-four year old guide and your noting the 1755 earthquake as a seminal moment in the design and understanding of our physical and social structures, I thought how we, now, have this significant opportunity to achieve 'entwinement' through the insights and holistic understanding clearly articulated in the 'Well Tempered City'. Thank you.
