Summary
'Happy City' is the story of how the solutions to this century's problems - from climate change to overpopulation - lie in unlocking the secrets to great city living. Why are some cities a joy to live in, and others chronically miserable? As award-winning journalist Charles Montgomery reveals, the answers lie in the intersection between urban design and the emerging science of happiness. Journeying to dozens of cities - from Atlanta to Bogota to Vancouver - he talks to the new champions of the happy city to discover the progressive movements already transforming people's lives
