Description


From Richard Florida, author of the bestselling books The Rise of the Creative Class and Who's Your City?, comes a book that frames the economic meltdown of 2008-09 not as a crisis but as an opportunity to "reset." In doing so, he paints a fascinating picture of what our economy, society, and geography will look like--of how we will work and live--in the future.
