Review

"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
