“Oldenburg has given us an insightful and extremely useful new lens through which to look at a familiar problem… ” –Roberta Gratz, “Editor’s Choice,” New York Times Book Review.” “A day doesn’t go by that I don’t refer to Ray Oldenburg’s The Great Good Place. At a time when all great, good independent bookstores every where are under siege, we’re fortunate that Mr. Oldenburg has articulated our message so clearly.” –Mitchell Kaplan, owner, Books & Books, Miami, Florida
