What Your Planning Professors Forgot to Tell You

What does an urban planner need most? A sense of humor! Peripatetic planner Paul C. Zucker proves it in his wise and funny new book What Your Planning Professors Forgot to Tell You­ 117 Lessons Every Planner Should Know.

Zucker knows a good story when he’s lived one and he shares a career’s worth in this collection. It’s a tongue-in-cheek primer on how planning really works (or doesn’t). His wry observations ring absolutely true on every page. Practicing planners will nod in rueful agreement with lessons­ often learned the hard way­ about achieving true success in planning and in life. And those just starting out will benefit from Zucker’s insights about management, vision, career paths, and professional relationships.
