Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For those considering a move to somewhere more livable, this is a useful survey that rates 219 small cities on 10 livability factors. These include health care, housing, public safety, transportation and more nebulous measures of proximity to an urban ambiance, sophistication and availability of diversions. There is also a table of each city's overall quality of life, and a final section giving a summary report card on each city, weighing its relative strengths and weaknesses. This is a companion volume to the Rating Guide to Life in America's Fifty States. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I found this to be an incredibly thorough exposition of life in small cities across the country. Statistics are logically arranged and easy to understand. The accompanying text clearly points the way to the best small cities in America. This is an excellent guide for anyone (like myself) who is looking to escape the metropolitan rat race. Highly, highly recommended
