"The thing is, it's very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better." – Jonathan Ive
- Full of writing, reports, and recommendations, The Monocle Guide to Better living is original, informative, entertaining, and comprehensive.
- This is not a book about glitz but rather an upbeat survey of products and ideas built to treasure and last.
- Structured into chapters on the city, culture, travel, food, and work, the book also provides answers to some key questions. Which cities offer the best quality of life? How do you build a good school? How do you run a city? Who makes the best coffee? And how do you start your own inspirational business?
- The Monocle Guide to Better living works as a guide but also includes 10 essays that explore what makes a great city, why craft is desirable, how to run your own hotel, and why culture is good for you.
