Well written and concise book on simple policy fixes to affordable housing in "Cascadia", the US pacific northwest and coastal BC. Alan Durning of the sightline institute does a great job of making zoning and land-use policy readable. It is interesting to me that Victoria and Vancouver are further ahead on a number of these policy initiatives than Seattle/Portland, but we have a long way to go to make housing affordable at all levels.

Brilliant. Oh hell, that's not a review. This brief natural history of several daily items, is probably not even outdated. A worthy read, over 20 years later. I'm sure, unfortunately, that the energy intensive life cycle of each consumer itme, has not changed much.
