Five Books : Why Deciding Where to Live May be the Most Important Decision you Make


    In Happy City, Charles Montgomery examines how urban design and planning influences happiness. If you are planning on moving from the suburbs to the city or vice versa, this book will be of interest.

Where we choose to live will have a profound effect on many aspects of our lives, including professional opportunities, quality of life and the people we meet.

Here are five books that will help you better understand the significance of choosing the place that best fits your own unique sensibilities. -P.
