Críticas:

"The world is not flat, and Richard Florida is the man to tell you why where you choose to live is more important than ever. Passionate and thoughtful, this book is an indispensable guide to the way our cities really work. The spirit of Jane Jacobs lives on."--Tim Harford, "Financial Times" columnist and author of The Logic of Life "This book says all that I could never put into words about why certain cities sing to certain people. If I could talk like Florida writes, I wouldn't have needed a campaign staff."--John Hickenlooper, Mayor of the City of Denver "Who's Your City? is another breakthrough idea by urban life genius Richard Florida. The power of place has everything to do with our success well beyond our own recognition. If you are contemplating a move or know someone who is, or are even vaguely interested in the idea of place as self, this book is a must read."--Mario Batali, Chef and Restaurateur "The world is not flat. Three-dimensional 'place' matters more than ever, not less than before. Richard Florida gets it exactly right -- again -- in Who's Your City?. As a long time advocate of Florida's position here, I will send it to colleagues by the score!"--Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence .,."the author opens up a complex, under examined subject..."-- "Publishers Weekly" (December 17, 2007) .,."this thought-provoking and seminal work will surely be studied, not only by scholars but more importantly by consumers pondering a move..."--"Washington Post"

Reseña del editor:

In the age of globalization, some claim that where you live doesn't matter: Alaska, Idaho, and Alabama are interchangeable. The world is, after all, flat. Not so fast. Place, argues the great urbanist Richard Florida, is not only important, it's more important than ever. In fact, choosing a place to live is as important to your happiness as choosing a spouse or career. And some regions, recent surveys show, really are happier than others. In Who's Your City, Creative Class guru Richard Florida reports on this growing body of research that tells us what qualities of cities and towns actually make people happy--and he explains how to use these ideas to make your own choices. This indispensable guide to how people can choose where to live and what those choices mean to their lives and their communities is essential reading for everyone from urban planners and mayors to recent graduates.

Descripción Basic Books (AZ). Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 384 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.0in. x 1.1in.From the best-selling author of The Rise of the Creative Class, a brilliant new book on the surprising importance of place, with advice on how to find the right place for you. Its a mantra of the age of globalization that where we live doesnt matter. We can innovate just as easily from a ski chalet in Aspen or a beachhouse in Provence as in the office of a Silicon Valley startup. According to Richard Florida, this is wrong. Globalization is not flattening the world; in fact, place is increasingly relevant to the global economy and our individual lives. Where we live determines the jobs and careers we have access to, the people we meet, and the mating markets in which we participate. And everything we think we know about cities and their economic roles is up for grabs. Whos Your City offers the first available city rankings by life-stage, rating the best places for singles, families, and empty-nesters to reside. Floridas insights and data provide an essential guide for the more than 40 million Americans who move each year, illuminating everything from what those choices mean for our everyday lives to how we should go about making them. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Nº de ref. de la librería 9780465018093
