Intelligently designing our towns could reduce marathon commutes and child chauffeuring to a few miles or eliminate it entirely. Agility, Russell argues, also means learning to adapt to the effects of climate change, which means redesigning the obsolete ways real-estate is financed; housing subsidies are distributed; transportation is provided; and water is obtained, distributed and disposed of. These engines of growth have become increasingly more dysfunctional both economically and environmentally. The Agile City highlights tactics that create multiplier effects, which means that ecologically driven change can shore-up economic opportunity, can make more productive workplaces, and can help revive neglected communities. Being able to look at multiple effects and multiple benefits of political choices and private investments is essential to assuring wealth and well-being in the future. Green, Russell writes, grows the future.

I wish this was better.
Would you try another book from James S. Russell and/or Brandon Massey?
I wish I had read this in a paper format. Good information but it sounded it like it was read by an old text to speech translator.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator spoke haltingly and put weird emphasis on different words that made it hard to follow and understand what was being said. The extreme monotone also made sure that most of the information was lost in the drone.
Any additional comments?
Read a paper copy of this book. Don't listen to it.
