really liked it

The notion of the creative class as a) the driving force of innovation and economic growth and b) as something which can be nurtured and should become self aware is a powerful one for understanding modern society. Hence this book is an important one.

It is a little over intellectual and self indulgent in places though.

For reference - members of the creative class range from musicians to engineers - ie anyone who exercises creativity in their work rather than follows instructions. The other two main classes are the traditional working class and the service class.
