Whether you'll enjoy this book will depend on what you're looking for If you want a detailed analysis with tons of experimental data to back up definite conclusions this will disappoint It is of a wide ranging survey of research observation and anecdote than it is a rigorous scientific presentation If you don't mind a somewhat meandering hike through different ideas then the sheer breadth of topics that Vanderbilt covers will change the way you think about transportation He delves into developmental psychology physiology evolution sociology technology engineering economics history any and every aspect that could possibly have an influence on how we get around The sparse and contradictory nature of research in the field of transportation serves to underscore Vanderbilt's point that this is a complicated messy area of modern lifeOne warning for Kindle readers however fully the final third of the book is endnotes providing what looks like additional detail data references and nuance to the main content But in the Kindle edition there is nothing linking the prose to the notes no clickable links or even markers to indicate that there is a related note Likewise in the endnote section there's nothing to link each note back to the associated prose So it ends up being 100 pages of random statements without context pretty useless

The title sums it up I work in highway safety and use some of the info in this book as conversation starters when teaching Even if you are not a traffic geek it is an easy read which will make you think next time you are out on the open road If people who read this simply tell their friends how a lane drop is supposed to work and they tell two friends driving will be better for everyone
