The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World's Most Creative Places from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley
In his travel memoir The Geography of Bliss, former NPR and New York Times correspondent Eric Weiner took us from America to Iceland to India in search of happiness, or, in the crabby author's case, moments of "un-unhappiness." Now, in The Geography of Genius, examines the connection between our surroundings and our most innovative ideas, demonstrating how certain urban settings are conducive to ingenuity. Tonight, he’s here to share what he learned from Vienna, Renaissance Florence, Silicon Valley, and beyond.
