According to Joel Garreau, we are in the middle of the biggest change in 100 years in how we live, work, and play--and most of us don't even know it. By moving our jobs out to the suburbs where we live and shop, we have created Edge Cities. Garreau has spent three years visiting Edge Cities and presents a groundbreaking book about who we are, how we got that way, where we are headed and what we value.
