New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice

“The great value of this book is that Mr. Oldenburg has given us an insightful and extremely useful new lens through which to look at a familiar problem.” -Roberta Gratz, New York Times Book Review

“Well-written, informative, and often entertaining.” –Newark Star-Ledger

“Examines gathering places and reminds us how important they are. People need the “third place” to nourish sociability.” –Parade

“Oldenburg believes that the powerful need in humans to associate with one another will inevitably lead to the revival of places where, as the theme song to Cheers, the TV show, so aptly puts it, ‘everyone knows your name.’ We’ll drink to that.” –Booklist
