really liked it
Recommended for: people (esp. twentysomethings) who want to move somewhere/ find a good place to live
Read in June, 2009

By creative, they don't mean artists and writers and such but also scientists and computer programmers, management, lawyers, healthcare, and anyone who is a "knowledge worker" or lives by their brains. Basically, everyone- except working class, service industry, and agriculture.

how attitudes towards work have changed; the working conditions under which creative people like to operate and thrive; the things that attract creative people to a place, why certain areas of america/ cities are growing while others are not.

Has lots of data and rankings.
