9781447293316: How to Live in the City (School of Life)

Building a relationship with a city is a lot like building a relationship with another person—just as cities can be intoxicating, generous and inspiring, so they can also be dangerous, fickle and impenetrable. This is a book for navigating and nurturing this important relationship. Hugo Macdonald believes you need to feel a city to understand it. He won't tell you how wide the perfect pavement should be but he will show you how to walk down a pavement with eyes wide open. This is a book to help you feel human in an inhuman environment.

Review:

The School of Life is dedicated to making our lives clearer, less puzzling and more enjoyable - by studying the big themes of life with the help of culture. This new series of self-help books continues to reinvent the genre, making it into something more serious, profound and genuinely helpful. Alain de Botton
