  • Praise for Cities:
    A fascinating account of how cities grow and sometimes crumble... Reader's magpie eye...picks out gems... Entertaining... Cities is, finally, a celebration of its subject's refusal to be explained or controlled.

  • Cities is vastly entertaining, and Reader has a fine eye for the telling anecdote and statistic... Reading it is a bit like wandering with an erudite companion through a great city in which the past rubs shoulders with the present and surprises lurk around every corner.

  • It is probably the most enjoyable book ever written about the matter of a city... fascinating

    Jan Morris, The Times
