Traffic: Why we drive the way we do (and what it says about us)
Traffic: Why we drive the way we do (and what it says about us)
by Tom Vanderbilt
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing purchase, 3 Sep 2009
Traffic is too dry for the fun of a good read and too thin for serious social study. It reads like one large chapter of introduction or a very stretched essay. I expected more depth in the overall subject in structured layers and chapters. Instead, Vanderbilt keeps skimming the surface by jumping between a large variety of researches and studies, relating it to his person and own experiences. That could work if you start to sympathise or get involved with the main character. But I didn't. I put it away halfway through, because I could not be bothered anymore. Maybe I'm not that much of a petrolhead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Budget cd with re-recordings and live tracks, 25 April 2009
This review is from: Get Ready And More Hits (Audio CD)
Beware, these tracks are not the original recordings. Rare Earth tracks are re-recorded and Vanilla Fudge is a (recent?) live performance. Not sure if there are original bandmembers. Booklet does not say, although the vocal parts for Rare Earth do sound very much like Peter Rivera singing them.
