Armed with an unmistakable sense of aesthetics and journalistic tenacity, its team—led by editor-in-chief Tyler Brûlé—has created an intelligent publication that continually inspires a global readership who is interested in everything from diplomacy to design. 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.
