"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."
