    Most important recent books?

    Trying to put together my reading list for my research, but my reading list is faintly dated. What are some of the most important books about transportation planning practice to come out in the past ten years or so?

    The only one off the top of my head is ITE's Context Sensitive Design for Thoroughfares. The rest of them IMHO are just rearrangement of the deck chairs.

    High Cost of Free Parking

    The High Cost of Free Parking. Agree with Don Shoup or not, it is widely quoted. And I think there is a lot of good material in there, personally.

    Smart urbanism reading list

    I stumbled upon this on a linkedin group. This is beyond transport planning but should be useful.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I'm basically a Shoupista but High Cost of Free Parking still put me to sleep...
