Sprawl Kills reveals what land developers and home builders dont want you to hear, and corrupt politicians dont want you to know. It debunks the `American Dream where `success means piloting gas-guzzling SUVs to oozing honeycombs in blandburbs developed by greedy developers under the guise of a better life- meaning a large house in which to pacify yourself that a thirty-minute drive to the grocery store is a sane trade off.

Sprawl is more than subdivisions - it is a culture of super-size homes for super-size people - it is automobile apartheid - it is the mindset of social isolation. Worst of all, sprawl is causing a phenomena known as Sedentary Death Syndrome that is killing 400,000 Americans yearly. Sprawl Kills is a hard-hitting book with a new market approach for replacing sprawl with Healthy Places- mixed-use communities that promote active living.

It explains why America is balanced precariously on the edge of a cliff, teetering as it looks at two distinct futures. One where citizens are empowered as consumers and voters to get real housing, community and transportation choices for leading healthier, physically active lives, while the other is fraught with obesity, exclusion, worsening traffic, and disappearing greenspace.You can certainly choose to ignore sprawl, but it will not ignore you. In Sprawl Kills you will learn how to fight corrupt sprawl politics, identify sprawl shills, and kill sprawl, before it kills you.
