"...one of the seminal architecture books of recent times."
- Professor Tom Wooley, Architects Journal

"This gentle book offers a route out of the nightmare of so much callous modern construction. I was inspired."
- Colin Amery, The Financial Times.

"The 'bible' of many architects and those interested in architecture."
- Centre for Alternative Technology.

"...an inspiration to all those who care about the influence of the environment on Man's health and well-being."
- The Scientific and Medical Network

"A wonderful, ground-breaking book."
- Permaculture Magazine

"If this book was set to music, it would be an "ultimate chill-out" album. From start to finish Christopher Day's seminal work "Places of the Soul" is a haven of tranquility, warmth and rationality. First written in 1988, but now thoroughly revised, his flowing style and inviting, curvaceous line illustrations quickly begin to caress your soul to such a degree that you feel you'll never draw a straight line again!"
- Get Sust!

"Are you looking for a book that recognizes the need for designing buildings to meet lofty sustainability goals, but that also places human needs on an equal or superior plane? Do you look at new mechanistic buildings of steel, titanium and low-e glass and wonder how it's possible to feel inspired, or even comfortable, when you're in them? If you answer yes to these questions, then perhaps you would benefit from reading the second edition of Christopher Day's book, Places of the Soul, Architecture and Environmental Design as a Healing Art. Places of the Soul is an excellent primer for students of architecture seeking a balance between design for sustainability and for human needs, between a mass-produced machine aesthetic and one that includes hand-craftsmanship, and between sterile mind-numbing sameness and invigorating variety."
- Thomas L. McKittrick, Professor Emeritus, Architecture, Texas A&M University

"The book concludes with a strong discussion of ideas for planning urban environments while promoting economic vitality and sense of community that will be appealing to those interested in urban planning and revitalization.
The book's photos and the discussion of interior space décor will appeal to those favoring a rustic and timeless aesthetic."
- Environments

"The book presents a critical analysis of the form and function of modern construction by shifting standard planning and design methods to those more socially and environmentally sustainable and (most importantly) people-centered."
- Gregory Rose, Geography & Environmental Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
