Reading : Suburban Nation

Hooray for me ... I got a new book from Amazon.com. Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking: "Amazon.com isn't a 'local' business, Joe." I know that I should shop local, but when it comes to books, I just haven't found a better shopping experience -- anywhere.

Anyways, the book I'm reading is called Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream. You might notice that this book falls in line with the other texts listed on the left side of this blog. (You get bonus points if you figured it out before I told you.) Interesting chapter headings include:
  • What is Sprawl, and Why?
  • The House that Sprawl Built
  • The American Transportation Mess
  • Sprawl and the Developer
  • The Victims of Sprawl
  • How to Make a Town

When I finish my reading, I promise to provide an objective review of the book. Please ... try your best to maintain your excitement.
