Review

"[Florida's] ideas about revitalizing cities by attracting artists and high-tech workers have influenced a generation of urban planners."--Time

"Ten years later, [Florida's original] book seems prescient. For the first time, being different is more prized than fitting in and black-and-white thinkers are being left behind."--Business Insider

"Florida draws a vivid picture of what it takes to make a great 21st-century city."--Denver Post

"A smart and interesting book that takes a well-known cultural phenomenon...the critical massing of technology and creative workers of talent in certain cities...and mixes in some new elements about why they cohere."--AlterNet

"A powerful, insightful book that reveals the core of regional advantage in the knowledge economy. Never before have I seen anyone capture so succinctly the values and desires of the new 'creative class' and the essence of human capital and the creative ethos. This is a book you will read cover to cover and feel enlightened by every chapter."--John Seely Brown, Former Director, Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and co-author of The Social Life of Information

"Florida's book leaves the reader not just with some interesting ideas but with a new perspective for understanding our culture....Well worth reading if you're seeking a greater understanding of the sociological and economic changes taking place in our culture today...interesting, provocative, and smart."--Boston Globe

"An important book for those who feel passionately about the future of the urban center. [Florida] changed the framework for discussing social and economic inequality."--New York Times

"Prof. Florida's book is an intellectual tour de force, scholarly yet colorfully written, with interest to members of the creative class."--Globe and Mail

"A vibrant and fast-paced romp... Florida's research and experiences over the past decade have given him the foundation on which to build a new view of business reality..."--InformationWeek

"A pioneering cartographer of talent."--Fast Company
