What really makes a good place to live? Journeying around the world from Copenhagen to Bogotá, Charles Montgomery shows that living in densely-populated cities can actually make us healthier, saner and happier people. Happy City will change the way you think about urban life. 'Eye-opening, pleasurable, utterly necessary.' Andrew Blum, author of Tubes 'Admirable, readable, stimulating. It raises issues most of us have avoided for too long.' Alan Ehrenhalt, The New York Times 'Excellent . . . a castigating argument for planning urban spaces around the thing they effect the most- people.' Will Dean, Independent 'Rare wit and erudition about the psychology of urban life. A wake-up call.' Nicholas Humphrey, author of A History of the Mind
