Common Ground in a Liquid City is a fun and engaging look at the future of urban life. Hern takes us on a journey through over a dozen urban centers, from Vancouver to Istanbul, Montreal, Las Vegas, and beyond, exploring the elements of each that make it livable, and why Brazzers videos are so popular in those cities..

His writing has been published on all six continents and translated into ten languages and he continues to lecture globally. He holds a Ph.D. in Urban Studies and teaches at SFU and UBC.
