"Edward Glaeser is one of the world's most brilliant economists, and Triumph of the City is a masterpiece...This beautifully written book makes clear how cities have not only survived but thrived, even as modern technology has seemingly made one's physical location less important."

Steven D. Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics
