Summary
"The Cul-de-Sac Syndrome explores why homeownership has become a fractured dream and presents ways to revive it. Combining analysis with insights into cultural and economic myths, the book provides an incisive look at the consequences of unsustainable lifestyle, exposing its economic, cultural, and market-related roots and the larger effects on the community, economy, and environment"--Provided by publisher
