"A growing body of research demonstrates that community design and our built environment have enormous potential for addressing many of our chief public health concerns. The authors convincingly argue that building a healthier future is not only possible, but essential."--Georges C. Benjamin "MD, FACP, executive director, APHA " "Years ago, we could see that the correlation between sprawl and poor health should be made. Now it is done. Urban Sprawl and Public Healthdetails how our lifestyle leads to serious health problems. This book should be reviewed widely and its facts should be known by all of us. It will be one of the central texts of the New Urbanism." --Andres Duany "author of Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream " "Suburban sprawl is killing us. Increasingly, physicians, public health officials, planners, and designers recognize the relationships between our health and our built surroundings. Urban Sprawl and Public Health offers a cogent diagnosis of this health menace as well as timely prescriptions for healing our cities."--Frederick Steiner "dean, School of Architecture, University of Texas at Austin "
