This book starts out with the premise that "cars are here to stay". So if you're looking for a radical approach to cars don't buy this book. Its written by the electric car lobby who wnt us all to believe that if we buy electric cars everything will be ok. In other words if your community is gridlocked by electric cars that's better than being gridlocked by fossil fuel driven cars. It ignores what immense resources & energy are needed to build a car, no matter how it is powered. Never mind if we continue to consume & buy cars the economy will be fine. Just make sure they're electric cars. Commercial over.
