World-renowned urbanist Richard Florida's bestselling classic on the transformation of our cities in the twenty-first century
In his modern classic The Rise of the Creative Class, urbanist Richard Florida identifies the emergence of a new social class that is reshaping the twenty-first century's economy, geography, and workplace. This Creative Class is made up of people--engineers and managers, academics and musicians, researchers, designers, entrepreneurs and lawyers, poets and programmers--whose work turns on the creation of new forms. Increasingly, Florida observes, this Creative Class determines how workplaces are organized, what companies prosper or go bankrupt, and which cities thrive.
In this updated edition, Florida further refines his occupational, demographic, psychological, and economic profile of the Creative Class. Incorporating additional research and new chapters covering the global impact of the Creative Class and exploring the factors that shape "quality of place" in our changing cities and suburbs, The Rise of the Creative Class--Revisited is the definitive edition of this foundational book on our contemporary economy.

He lives in New York and Toronto.Review:
"Florida's book leaves the reader not just with some interesting ideas but with a new perspective for understanding our culture.... Well worth reading if you're seeking a greater understanding of the sociological and economic changes taking place in our culture today...interesting, provocative, and smart"
--The Boston Globe
"An important book for those who feel passionately about the future of the urban center. [Florida] changed the framework for discussing social and economic inequality."--Herbert Muschamp, The New York Times
"Ten years later, [Florida's original] book seems prescient. For the first time, being different is more prized than fitting in and black-and-white thinkers are being left behind."
