Angela Curl reviewed Accessibility Analysis and Transport Planning: Challenges for Europe and North America  by Karst Geurs, Kevin Krizek and Aura Reggiani.

Geurs et al

Angela states that ‘The book encapsulates the broad spectrum of work which may come under the umbrella of accessibility’ and recommends that readers have a firm grounding in accessibility prior to reading some of more complex chapters. Within the review she emphasises the need for further individual, people-focused efforts to benefit a largely aggregate approach adopted by the sub-discipline.  You can read the review here.
