4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Erin L. Albert on December 21, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is a definite must read for every mayor, town council member, governor, and president of any city, state or country in the world. With all the disasters going on in the world, this book is a true gem in that it focuses on solutions for problems (with real case studies cited) and shows not only good ideas, but real, tangible ideas too. The toolkit for urban innovators is an excellent subtitle for this book. I am only a fraction of the way in, but I can barely put it down!

It is the book that best defined the relationship between creativity and city, also what it is when the two are combined.
