“Human Transit” by Jarrett Walker, nearing publication

Many of you are familiar with the excellent blog Human Transit, run by professional transit planner and native Portlander Jarrett Walker. Over the past several months, Jarrett has been working on a book by the same name, and it is nearing publication. It’s being published by Island Press, and is available for pre-order at various online booksellers, including amazon.com and Powell’s.

Unfortunately, Powell’s saw fit to file it under “Automotive-General”….

The table of contents and introduction are both available online at the Human Transit blog. Currently, the book is only order-able in print format (either hardcover or paperback), though Jarrett has stated that electronic versions will be available as well.

Congratulations to Jarrett!

    Any idea if a Powell’s reading might happen?

    You’ll have to ask Jarrett; he can be contacted at his blog. Note that he does not presently live in Portland, though does visit from time to time.

    If someone thinks there should be a Powell’s reading, tell Powell’s! I’ll be in Portland for much of December.

    Thanks for the plug, and congrats on the great blog. Jarrett
