Relocation Resources

Cities Ranked and Rated: More than 400 Metropolitan Areas Evaluated in the U.S. and Canada
Bert Sperling, Peter Sander, 1st edition
Insider's Guide to Relocation
Beverly Roman and John Howells, 2nd edition
Greener Pastures -- How to Find a Job in Another Place
Andrea Kay
Sperling's Best Places
Companion site to Cities Ranked and Rated. Interesting article on cities ranked by incidence of respiratory illness.
Offers a quiz that results in a custom list of places "that fit you". The quiz is great in concept, and nicely constructed. However, I found that the results were heavily weighted toward smaller towns, and changing the priority settings did little to improve the results.
Dig into a city's culture, cuisine and more. Decent search options, and occasional articles on topics such as "Best Places for Singles" or "Non-smoking Night Clubs".
Life 2.0 -- How People Across America and Transforming Their Lives by Finding the Where of their Happiness
Rich Karlgaard
