Excerpts: For the Love of Cities

Excerpt – “Why Lovable Cities Matter”
This section from the beginning of the book outlines the economic, social and psychological reasons why our relationships matter to us as human beings.

Excerpt – The Continuum of Engagement
We are all in a relationship with our community and this section looks at the degree to which we are (or aren’t) engaged with our places.

Excerpt – “Food is Love – aka Can She Cook?”
In looking at what makes cities lovable, I equate many things to our personal relationships.  And one of the things that binds us together and is often core to our relationships is food.  Here I look at how local foods are tied to community identity and how one community is actively using that connection to recruit talent.
