This book combines three main ideas in relation to urban planning: community through urban planning, urban planning and its effect on mental health, and the intersection of wealth and urban planning. At the end of the three chapters, a conclusion chapter outlines some positive actions readers can implement to fight against the challenges that modern planning brings to communities. Essentially, this book is a starting point for those starting to learn about the impact of urban planning on their lives and the lives of those in their communities. The book is informational yet personal, telling stories of communities through both statistics and interviews.
