I put in a plug for it on Aug. 4, but we need to put in new plugs periodically to tell the newcomers to Cohousing-L and remind those who intended to look for the book but didn't get around to it. I didn't hear about this book from the cohousing people, and I knew a lot about cohousing when I read it, but he describes beautifully why we need co- housing without ever mentioning cohousing directly. And if (due to location etc.) you can't do anything to promote cohousing, the book suggests a lot of other things you can do, such as opposing zoning schemes (quite popular in New England, unfortunately) that call for spreading single-family houses on 1-acre or larger lots over most of the land area of a town.
