    1. I really loved this little book. Not only was it funny and entertaining, it has incredibly interesting facts. Not only that, I was pleasantly surprised to learn something new about my hometown- Amsterdam. Easy to follow, for those of us who aren't familiar with the basic concepts of spacial planning. It's insightfulness and clarity make it accessable for all. Solomon is a city lover, and he understands other city lovers.
