The author discusses his book "American Urbanist: How William H. Whyte's Unconventional Wisdom Reshaped Public Life."

"American Urbanist" shares the life and wisdom of William "Holly" Whyte, a man whose advocacy reshaped many of the places we know and love today — from New York’s bustling Bryant Park to preserved forests and farmlands around the country. Whyte's experiences as a WWII intelligence officer and leader of the genre-defining reporters at Fortune Magazine in the 1950s shaped his razor-sharp assessments of how the world actually worked — not how it was assumed to work. His 1956 bestseller, "The Organization Man," catapulted the dangers of “groupthink” and conformity into the national consciousness.
