Richard Register belongs to the Ben Franklin tradition of inventors, generalists, and hopeful geniuses. His ideas about ecological cities are a valuable contribution to the great human task of figuring out how to manage a biosphere and enjoy life while we are at it.”
-Walter Truett Anderson, author of To Govern Evolution

“A trailbreaking book, essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of our cities–in a class with the Goodmans’ Communitas and Alexander’s A Pattern Language.
-Ernest Callenbach, author of Ecotopia
