Praise for CONFESSIONS OF A RECOVERING ENGINEER "I've been waiting for this book for a long time. It's been more than a decade since its title essay rocked me to my core; reading it was my Meg Ryan When Harry Met Sally moment. Over the intervening years, Chuck's message has become all the more necessary, and America may finally be ready for it." --JEFF SPECK, city planner and author of Walkable City and Walkable City Rules "This should be required reading--and the default approach to transportation--for anyone who cares about building safe streets and strong communities, whether transportation engineers, urban planners, policymakers or advocates." --BETH OSBORNE, Director of Transportation for America "Marohn shows how the manuals, standards, and professional practices of traffic engineering reflect judgments about who matters and who doesn't--judgments that deserve to be visible so that we can all debate them." --JARRETT WALKER, transit planner and author of Human Transit How American roads are designed and how we can do better We all want to live in a place where the transportation system serves us. But with crumbling roads, skyrocketing costs, maddening amounts of congestion, thousands of traffic deaths each year, and unreliable public transit...it feels like the other way around. So who's serving who? In Confessions of a Recovering Engineer: Transportation for a Strong Town, renowned speaker and author of Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity Charles Marohn pulls back the curtain on the assumptions and approaches that go into building and managing America's transportation systems. He demonstrates how, with a different approach, any community can spend less and provide transportation systems that make their residents safer, wealthier, healthier, and more prosperous.
