"When asked to rate happiness in relation to things like work, finances, personal life, and place on a 1-to-5 scale, place scored 3.63, behind personal life (4.08) and work (3.98) but ahead of finances (3.46)."
For most of our history, migration has been involuntary. Yet, as Richard Florida points out, it is one of the most important factors in determining the satisfaction with our life - in fact, it tops the charts! So, are you happy with where you are living? Was the location where you're currently living a conscious choice? Is there a place where you could be happier? And what makes a good community, or a place to live anyway? As you might guess, there are no absolute answers to any of these questions. But, there are good answers for each stage of your life.
This book provides a great framework to get you to think about all of these questions within the context of your own life. As they say, location, location, location. While I "understood" this implicitly, I don't think I appreciated the importance of this observation until I've read this book. Highly recommend it. It just might change your life, by changing where or how you live.
