Urbanism Without Effort is a new book by Chuck Wolfe; the book explores "what happens naturally when people congregate in cities -- innate,
unprompted interactions of urban dwellers with each other and their surrounding urban and physical environment." Chuck, whose writing regularly appears in The Atlantic and Huffington Post, explores underlying rationales for urban policy, planning
and regulation from a historical perspective, with an eye for the everyday uses of urban space.
Chuck's book offers readers inspiration, historical context, and a better understanding of how a sustainable, inviting urban environment is created.
