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.

    " A real eye-opener! Another great read right before the election. This book helped me to see the truth behind the economy. "

    " Richard Florida, teaches at the Rotman School of Business in Toronto Canada and is one of the leading thinkers about innovation, geography and where economic prosperity will exist in the years ahead as well discussing those who will propel it. Having nearly finished this book I find it loaded (overloaded) with statistics but that doesn't take away from Florida's point that we need to update our thinking in any number of ways from education, infrastructure and how we perceive what is possible for us to accomplish in these particular difficult times. Just like in difficult times of the past Innovation isn't dead but it is stalled by outdated economic policies regarding housing and the nature of work. Humanity needs to make the next great leap just like we did when we landed on the moon. I gave this book 4 stars even though it might rate only 3.5 (no option there) Still Florida gives us some good food for thought among a plethora of statistics. "

    " I find this kind of historical analysis very interesting "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Brian | 1/14/2014

    " I think Florida put together some interesting idea, but he didn't really flesh them out very well. There were a lot of broad concepts, but not much to tie them in - not a lot of depth to this book, in my view. "
