5-0 out of 5 stars Power and ample information and graphics
I found this book to be one of the best out on the topic, of which there are too few at present for such an important topic. The depth and breadth of place-making topics and their coverage makes this a very excellent easy-to-read-and-understand as well as a long-term reference tool. The graphics are very well done. Having recently attended a Harvard program on retail for cities and new towns and urban center given by Bob Gibbs and Terry Shook, I especially found the book right on target. I want to see more of these types of books. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Release The Power
PowerNomics should be required reading for every African American book club, community organization, church, and family.The book embodies tenents set forth from Marcus Garvey to Elijah Muhammed to DuBois and Washington.If you believe that "God helps those who help themselves," PowerNomics is an action plan to achieve self-sufficiency.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is truly Black America's second Bible
Before I read this book, I had not one clue how bad we as African Americans had it.This book truly opened my eyes.The statistics that were presented would make Dr. King literally cry.We have gotten so far behind other nationalities that it is literally pathetic.Claud Anderson's vision if implemented can really change the course that us as Blacks are on.This book should be in every Black American's household.

5-0 out of 5 stars Live on your feet or die on your knees
Mr. Andersons' book provides a thorough examination, diagnosis, and best possible cure for what ails black america. Not poor whites, hispanics, arabs, jews, gays, or white women. You owe it to you and your family to at least check out the facts of this examination and then decide.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars relative to others
It's not the perfect urban economics book, but since there is no other better, it deserves a 5. The book is very comprehensive, which is good. There are topics that could be explored better (either simplified or extended) and some times more accurately according to the standard urban economics theory. Some topics are not really urban economic issues, but they can be avoided during the reading. It has a very good survey of empirical evidence, but I'd prefer to have more details on the evidence and on the limitations of the empirical studies. Also, it needs more realistic examples. The questions at the end of the chapter are not creative, and not well adjusted to the material in the book (they sound vague, most of the time).

5-0 out of 5 stars Brand new book w/ prompt delivery
STILL IN PACKAGE, book was in great shape, brand new, prompt delivery.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very comprehensive overview
I had "Urban Economics" for one of my urban planning courses at graduate school.It was a pleasure to study the principles and processes of city building, growth and dynamics, through this book.Every chapter inthe book can be a title for a separate volume.So this is a verycomprehensive overall general view of economics as a determinant of urbandevelopment and form.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Follow-Up for People Who Actually Want to DO Something!
Yes, it's somewhat academic, but it's also practical. I do a lot of volunteer work in an urban environment (for the arts, for an animal shelter, organizing neighbourhood clean-ups, etc.) and this book offers some insights to the big picture of how people can work together to make a tangible difference. If you want to actively improve your environment, for yourself and others, this will give you some food for thought. Also makes for good discussion with associates.

1-0 out of 5 stars This book is lousy
My hunch is this is a cheap sequel.Not a lot of discussion, just a lot of (regression) results reporting.Extremely repetitive.Moreover, given that this often verves into being fairly social science (as opposed to pop), the causal linkages seem pretty poorly established.If you want to read this for professional reasons (social science or urban planning), most of this could be ignored; if you want to read this for personal (i.e., recreational) reasons, it's really boring. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars bouclier
This book is excellent. I definitely recommend it to people like myself who wish to start a consulting practice from scratch with no prior knowledge in consulting. It's motivating and gives the reader the kow-how.

2-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, but way to basic
Although this book does cover numerous topics, the information provided is common sense "fluff" and not detailed at all.If you have never consulted before, this might be a good source of information; however, ifyou are currently a consultant considering the leap to independence, thisbook will be of little value to you.I don't feel it was worth the [$].

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide for Independent Consultants
