Audiobook of City

10 April 2013 | City | 2 comments

I spent yesterday on a train (actually, several trains) listening for the first time to the audiobook of City. The narrator is Steven Crossley and he reads it beautifully. It's a new experience for me, listening to someone else read my words. I haven't heard all of it yet - it's more than thirteen hours long! - but I certainly enjoyed the experience. And I hope you will too. You can find it at Audible in the UK or the US.

City is still picking up reviews, most recently in the Spring 2013 issue of Urban Design journal, where it was described as "an excellent introduction to the city, and should be on every student's reading list".

    Congratulations on the audiobook version of City! Yes it is certainly an interesting experience hearing someone else narrate one's own words (which were originally one's thoughts!)
    I've been enjoying City very much. I'm really learning a lot. I love how it is organised into themes, such as traffic patterns, architecture, and so forth. It is incredibly well-researched.

    Thanks Paul - I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying it :-)
