Praise

The content is intelligent, well laid out, entertaining, understandable, and approachable…Often, works about the future of the automobile industry are just tools to express idealistic beliefs or anti-industry sentiments. This book is refreshing because the authors understand the whole package in terms of current problems, and their solutions, and succinctly present a glimpse of a future (and a present) that people can feel good about.—Choice

It isn’t technological barriers so much as closed minds that are holding back the necessary evolution of the automobile; using calm and devastatingly inarguable logic, this is a virtual step-by-step manual that deploys an original idea on every page to show exactly how it can and should be achieved. If you care about cars, read this book: it opens your mind and lets the future in.

Bruce McCall, artist and writer, The New Yorker

Visionary in its totality, it is also soberly realistic.

Peter D. Norton, Metascience

Presents a fascinating and challenging model of technological possibilities.

Martin Wachs, Issues in Science and Technology
