By Eric Weiner

Em A Geografia dos Génios Eric Weiner, autor do aclamado bestseller A Geografia da Felicidade, conduz-nos a uma viagem à volta do mundo para examinar a relação entre determinadas cidades e algumas das ideias mais inovadoras que a história da humanidade conheceu. Para esse efeito, explora lugares como Viena, Florença, Atenas, Silicon Valley, entre outros, e revela-nos como certas configurações urbanas podem conduzir a uma genialidade altamente criativa. Dono de um sentido de humor altamente perspicaz e muito reconhecido, o autor faz-nos calcorrear os mesmos caminhos dos génios de outrora - como Sócrates, Miguel Ângelo ou Leonardo - e a descobrir qual a resposta a uma pergunta tão irónica quanto pertinente sobre o valor da cultura na promoção da criatividade: «O que está no ar destas cidades, podemos engarrafá-lo?»
