5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By steven on August 30, 2011
Format: Paperback
i met one of the authors in LA during his (car free) book tour. the book was very interesting to read and the arguments are well thought out and data is used to support their case. the book also details the attempted (car free) road trip of the two authors and the problems they run into (such as not being able to acquire food at night because all the resturaunts close and the only thing remaining open is drive throughs who do not serve customers who do not drive).i really wish more people (specifically americans) would read this book but i am concerned that it may be preaching to the choir. i was already car free before reading this book (although i still learned a great deal of useful and interesdting information) but i don't know how many other americans will willingly read a book with this title. i urge you all to read this book if you are concerned about the environment, resource depletion, obesity, isolation of communities and individuals, or social justice in general. it's a fantastic book and i was sad when i read the last page because i wanted to learn more.

For the past decade I have biked more than I have driven my car so I agree with the arguments in this book. The book is entertaining but it is more like a stroll or a ramble with interesting observations thrown out here and there that are not always backed up. If you don't like car culture you will like this book. If you like car culture, you will avoid this book if at all possible. If you are forced to read it you will not be convinced.

By Derek on May 5, 2014
Format: Paperback
The following statement will make you question the validity of my review but please, keep reading. As an engineering student and car enthusiast I was forced to read this book for an assignment and it was the most painful read I have ever had to endure (yes even more than mechanics and vector calculus). I, for the most part, agree with the concept of the book as we have become far too reliant on personal vehicles and I myself make an effort to ride my bicycle in order to decrease my carbon footprint, my problem with the book is its ridiculous lack of accuracy or understanding of anything automotive. Constantly I caught the text not citing statistics or making wild accusations of car history and culture that were untrue. I feel I was not being critical of the author as he outright states his opinions as fact even when they are not factually correct. I will be personally subjecting this book to a 12 gauge as it has made an otherwise enlightening sociology course incredibly frustrating.
