Description

"A brilliant, enjoyable & important book" - Richard Florida

What are cities for? How do they really work? What does our urban future hold?

Joe Berridge, one of the world's leading urban planners, answers these questions in the course of an insider's tour of some of the world's largest and most diverse cities. Hopping from New York to London, Shanghai to Singapore, Toronto to Sydney, he examines what is working and not working, what is promising and what needs to be fixed in the contemporary megalopolis. Readers will meet a succession of great urban innovators and stop by many of Joe's favorite restaurants as he presents his startling view of the magical urban future that awaits us all.
