-Jacquie Phelan, Mountain biking pioneer, three-time national champion, and founder of the Women's Mountain Bike & Tea Society (WOMBATS)
"Furness has produced a remarkable book. It is at once a history of bicycling in (mostly) the US; a cultural analysis of the bicycle, the car, and auto-mobility; and a solid piece of advocacy for bicycle-friendly policies. This solidly researched book covers a remarkable amount of territory....Highly Recommended."
"[Furness] puts forward an intelligent (and clearly impassioned) picture of a safer, saner, and sounder approach to mobility in the form of the bicycle...[T]his book brings our attention to an understudied and significant arena in the understanding of mobility...a valuable and delightful read."
"Furness offers a firm and thoroughgoing political critique of assumptions and practices inherent in much cycling work that is often missing from other analyses."
"One Less Car is a serious update and expansion of the social and political history of bicycling. I would own this book for the notes and bibliography alone."
—Robert Hurst, author of The Cyclist's Manifesto and The Art of Cycling
The power of the bicycle to impact mobility, technology, urban space and everyday life
