p. 186, paragraph ending with note 23: this paragraph should be edited as follows:
One problem inherent in metro systems is that they are expensive and time-intensive to build—something that many cities, especially in the developing world, can ill afford. Light rail or tram systems are far cheaper because they do not require digging tunnels; building underground stations, elevators, and escalators; or installing costly ventilation, lighting, and air conditioning. One study found that the median cost per kilometer cost for selected subway systems in cities around the world ranged from a low of $71 million in Helsinki to a high of $684 million in Singapore, whereas the light rail systems examined ranged from $39 million in Strasbourg (France) to $68 million in Melbourne. The median cost for subways selected subway systems in cities around the world was $288 million, nearly nine times the median cost of $33 million for light rail projects. However, subways achieve higher speeds than light rail and tram systems and are able to carry more passengers. (See Table 11–1).23

p. 302: the final sentence of the first full paragraph should read “Thermodynamically, cities are dissipative open (but with borders) systems that operate far from equilibrium: they are self-organized at the expense of increasing the level of disorder or entropy in the surrounding environment.”8
