For its first-ever book, The Monocle Guide to Better Living, the editorial team looks at one of their core themes: how to live well.

In this in-depth video, Tyler Brûlé, Andrew Tuck, and Robert Klanten talk about their shared vision for the book and how this indispensable reference of inspirational ways to improve your life was brought together.
