This beautiful book, wonderfully researched and written, is clearly a labor of love for architect Amado…there is much in general to be learned and an enjoyable ‘ride’ to be had.—CHOICE—
[T]his is one of those rare coffee-table volumes with an actual thesis, and it nicely combines the history of the automobile with that of architecture in ways that most readers, or perhaps ‘viewers’, will long remember.
—Technology and Culture
An engaging read…the book is almost an exploration of ideas on cars and mobility at this junction in history. Amado is a fluid writer, creating a charming narrative, chapter after chapter building up to the climax that is the story of the car itself.

Antonio Amado’s central project with this readable and engrossing book is to restore the car to what he considers its rightful place in Le Corbusier’s philosophy: at the centre.
