HT LIVE IN THE CITY


en Paperback – 14 ian 2016
How well do you know your city?

Building a relationship with a city is a lot like building a relationship with another person - just as cities can be intoxicating, generous and inspiring, so too can they be dangerous, fickle and impenetrable. This book will help you navigate and nurture this important relationship. Hugo Macdonald believes that you need to feel a city to understand it. He won't tell you exactly how wide the perfect pavement should be, but he will show you how to walk down the street with eyes wide open, helping you to explore all that the city has to offer. This is a book to help you feel human in an inhuman environment.

'The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge'
