At times perhaps a bit Utopian, at others it gives itself away as a product of 70s urban anarchism, Turner's book makes up for this in it's enthusiasm for self-help solutions to housing problems and a fundamental belief in people's ability to successfully manage their own destinies and lives without the overbearing interventions of large, centrally managed systems. That run on sentence was just my way of gushing about the book a bit. It's always good to read something a bit anti-technocratic, a bit sardonic and nonetheless proposing some interesting and pragmatic solutions. ( )
