This book is Number One in addressing the politics of where we're allowed to "go" in public. Adults don't talk about the business of doing our business. We work on one assumption: the world of public bathrooms is problem- and politics-free. No Place To Go: How Public Toilets Fail our Private Needs reveals the opposite is true. 
No Place To Go is a toilet tour from London to San Francisco to Toronto and beyond that shows how public bathrooms just don't work: for the homeless, who must literally take to the streets; for people with invisible disabilities such as Crohn's disease, who stay home rather than risk soiling themselves on public transit; for trans people, and many others. Public bathroom access is about cities, society, design, movement, and equity. The real question is: Why are public toilets so crappy?
