Note: I’m keeping this ebook post pinned to the top during the holiday shopping season. Scroll down for new content.
Here’s a reminder that my first Urbanophile Kindle e-book is out, conveniently in time for the holidays. It’s called “The Urban State of Mind: Meditations on the City” and you can get it at that link from Amazon. The e-book contains 28 of the best, most challenging, most make you think posts from nearly 1,200 articles during the first seven years of the Urbanophile. It’s a great introduction to my work. But what’s more, even for those of you who’ve already read everything, I’m including two new original essays as well as seven brief meditations on the city.
In The Urban State of Mind I write about innovation, talent attraction and brain drain, global soft power, sustainability, economic development, and localism. The essays are designed to provide a different angle on the issue from the conventional wisdom and prompt you to really start thinking about and wrestling with these complex and challenging issues.
