"This book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the future of cities - and that ought to be pretty much everyone, given that well over half the world's population now lives in cites, up from 29 per cent in 1950. In any event, Revelation makes it clear that if we don't live in one now, we shall, God willing." (Church Times, 27 March 2015)
