Native to Nowhere - Timothy Beatley. Preface and Acknowledgments. CHAPTER 1. Sustaining Place in the Global Age. A couple sitting next to me at a Starbucks in Falls Church, Virginia, was admiring the music being piped in and asked the Starbucks employee behind the counter who the musician was. You might have thought they were asking for an explanation of Fermi’s Paradox. Direct involvement in our communities and neighborhoods is another element in a meaningful, healthy life and will often yield tremendous enjoyment and personal satisfaction. Strong communities can do much to facilitate this participation and make it easy and enticing.

For an assigned college reading, it's not too bad. Book came in great condition just as it was advertised.

OTANO
Great book for students of architecture. It has a unique perspective on the American community and how we have become complacent with community design and need innovation.

I am currently using this as a textbook for one of my classes, and a general consensus among the students is that the author sounds almost excessively elitist in his content. While offering some highly favorable suggestions for the development of place and space (and describing in great detail the difference between the two), much of the focus, while on developing American landscapes-- presumably-- is on Western European urban designs, some of which would not fit well with our North American context. Likewise, while many of his suggestions would work exceptionally well-- it would seem-- in suburban landscapes, he seems to overlook-- or disregard-- the urban landscapes, which are those that seem to require the MOST change. For example, the emphasis on green space is pleasant enough, but one must also stop to think what this green space would be replacing in certain areas. The consequences of such deeds and suggestions does not seem to have been considered to the extent it should be; furthermore, the discussion of "home" and what "home" should be seems greatly deterred when one finds themselves bogged down with the realization that these representations of what is "best" for "home" seem to be based on Beatley's own desire for home ... not, in other words, the greater populace's ideas or desires for the matter! Again, interesting and educational matter, but I'd suggest taking it with a grain of salt when it comes to application.
