An Interesting Read and Conversation Starter.
on December 1, 2012
This is a good mix of research, anecdotes and opinionated writing from Mr Florida, who for his part, does not claim to have all the answers. Rather, this book seems to me a good starting point for asking if, why, and how, in an increasingly globalised world, where you choose to live still matters.
From a North American (and particularly Canadian) perspectives, Florida talks about why someone from Toronto might have more in common with another person from Montreal or New York, for example, than someone from other parts of Ontario. He explains why he believes that the city in which one lives is a reflection of their personality, values, and aspirations.
