Not only is diversity in career and lifestyle a constant theme of the book, but the diversity of the homes as well: a self-designed villa on the green outskirts of São Paulo is followed by a houseboat converted from an old trawler on a pier in San Francisco, or an urban oasis in the center of Japan’s bustle. The focus is on authentic stories from people and the environments they’ve created for themselves.”
