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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Every Civic Leader 22 Dec. 2008
By Erin L. Albert - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great book 12 Dec. 2008
By A. S. Hall - Published on Amazon.com

As a book concentrated on city design, it is really a good, helpful and also inspiring one. Has really good examples explaining the idea. Everything (the topics and the examples) is widespread. Really a helpful and creative book.
It is a long book with no images but the ideas keeps the reader avake and alert. When ' read i was alsways thinking what can i do about my city.
I really liked it.
