"Goldhagen's illuminating book on the design of our world begins just where it should, with us and how we live, not with a dazzling shell. She shows us many ways that good design can uplift our lives and how poor design can fail us."--Barbara Tversky, Professor Emerita of Psychology at Stanford University "A remarkable book and a fascinating exploration of the human experience in the city. Ground breaking, informed, and inspired."--Mikyoung Kim, Landscape Architect [Goldhagen's] analysis is practical and accessible ....[A] valuable compendium to design analysis and the benefits of progress in contemporary design. An eye-opening look at the ways in which carefully planned and executed design and architecture can expand cognitive faculties and improve daily life.--Kirkus "Goldhagen's fresh perspective is deep, exciting, and optimistic."--Booklist "Welcome to Your World will go far to help us create healthy, equitable, and thriving cities. This is extremely powerful stuff."--Faith Rose, former Executive Director of the Public Design Commission of the City of New York Faith Rose, former Executive Director of the Public Design Commission of the City of New York "Rarely does a book come along where its very premise is to stop you in your tracks, compel you to look around, take account of where you are standing... [Welcome to Your World] is one of those 'stop and smell the roses' experiences."--Huffington Post "Lucidly written in beautiful prose, Welcome to Your World will stimulate and delight professionals, students, and nonprofessionals alike. A must-read!"--NADER TEHRANI, AWARD-WINNING ARCHITECT AND DEAN OF THE IRWIN S. CHANIN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AT COOPER UNION "[A} feast for the mind...[with] a vital message: We can and must capitalize on this new knowledge to build more human-centered urban environments. It's a call to action we ignore at our peril."--COLIN ELLARD, AUTHOR OF PLACES OF THE HEART AND YOU ARE HERE "Goldhagen's book lays the groundwork for the cognitive neuroscience of architecture."--TERRENCE SEJNOWSKI, FRANCIS CRICK PROFESSOR AT THE SALK INSTITUTE FOR BIOLOGICAL STUDIES
