From the reviews:

"The book is an impressive, albeit lengthy, dissection and re-evaluation of current ecological models for city planning, one which will certainly cater more to the academics than the practitioners of sustainability. Given the extensive research and case studies this book is an important resource for all who are interested in looking at the bigger picture of sustainable issues in the city and architecture." (Thomas Wong, Futurarc, July, 2009)

"Paul’s bug was bigger than academic politics and his desire to educate was the world not the campus. And indeed that’s exactly what he’s doing with his new book ‘Ecopolis.’ Not only educating, but educating about what’s most important. … Perfect for post docs in the field and field workers in the doc’s office … . Perfect for all restless minds probing what’s the meaning of building these here cities in the first place. … It’s stuffed with illustrations, photos, charts and references … ." (Richard Register, Ecocities Emerging, September, 2009)
