Drive, A Road Trip Through Our Complicated Affair with the Automobile, by Tim Falconer, is an intelligent survey of how the automobile has influenced our modern culture in every aspect.
His narrative is cleverly composed of actual cross-continent "ride" adventures from quirky locales along Route 66 to sprawling cities. His perspective also takes the reader to foreign roads of China and Argentina examining their respective car cultures.
Are we heading toward "Carmageddon"?
