An instant publishing phenomenon (The New York Times)
The photographs in this volume, some of which have never been published before, capture the city's inhabitants with a commendable eye for demographic diversity and everyday street fashion. But it's Stanton's interviews with his subjects, usually excerpted from their rawest moments, that are the most captivating as they highlight both the hardship and the little victories of an often-unforgiving city. (The Atlantic)
The images are gorgeous, and the effect is like walking through a version of our city where startlingly honest thought bubbles appear over everyone's head. (The New York Magazine)

Stanton does a great job of selection and arrangement of the pictures and stories in the book too, so a natural flow and pace is established with each new picture and the tales which accompany it. The book as a result is highly readable and not simply an interesting table book (not that I would depreciate any of the previous books in contrast to this one, every one of them exudes a humanity, warmth and interest, a certain spirit, when this real begins to resonate with the reader it is not difficult to see how Stanton was considered one of the top thirty beneath thirty among creatives).
In particular I thought the placing of pictures of Obama and his own hopeful thinking next to a more joe average character and his much, much more pessimistic thinking was interesting, though that is only one example, I liked pretty much everything this book had to offer. Recommended.
Recommended to people that feel they cannot overcome their problems and feel a little bit lost. There are people out there facing the same or worst problems than ourselves, sometimes it helps read about them and visualise them.
If you want an idea of the content, you could have a look at their facebook page. It's great!
Cheaper on Amazon - so ordered there and then.
Perfect table book, or gift.
Really lovely, moving and funny too in places.
Nice human photos - nicely written pieces too.
