Thanks for your terrific piece on Jane Jacobs. Another book about her has just been published: Genius of Common Sense by Glenna Lang and Marjory Wunsch, published by David Godine and MAS (Municipal Art Society). This particular book is written for young people, to introduce them to the extraordinary work of Jane Jacobs.
