"Within its subject area, this brief and deceptively offhand book is the only game in town."
— Landscape Architecture
"Couched in the deceptively modest format of an essay (with several appendixes), [the book] proposes a far-ranging program of activity for the planning and design profession...A major portion of the essay is devoted to the processes of achieving sensory quality...Modes of diagnosis, policy-making, regulation, and design are followed by an outline proposing how a regional agency might undertake a program to improve the sensory quality of a region...The essay concludes with discussions of the thornier issues of environmental management, the question of selecting priorities, and the relations of sensory quality to conservation, ecology, politics, and behavioral science.... It is a masterpiece. Compactly written, poetic in its intensity, teeming with ideas, it is nevertheless grounded in the wisdom gained from twenty years of experiment, experience, and research, much of which Kevin Lynch himself has nurtured...will become a basic text for urban and environmental planning."
— AIP Journal
"A standard reference for city planning classes. It should also be taken to heart by politicians and community organizers. With his scholarly insight into urban life and problems, Lynch tackles the duality of modern living with a scientific precision and the conviction that we possess the cure for our self-inflicted disease."
