Ryan & Durning explore the impact of some of the choices we make by making connections between our daily habits and the various impacts of those habits. Find out the hidden story of "everyday consumer goods. Be polite, just go about your day, and all¿s well, because you¿re not hurting anybody, right? Look deeper into that cup of coffee you drank this morning, the shoes you¿re wearing, the burgers & fries you had for lunch¿. and so on. Every choice we make - every product we use - has an impact that many of us are unaware of. That impact affects other people, other animals, and the planet in myriad ways - often in very destructive, harmful ways.

The car was in the way of the demolition so it was reported to the police who then investigated who the owner was. According to German regional paper Augsberger Allgemein, the man, now 76-years-old, was driven by the police with his daughter to be reunited with the car. Unfortunately the car was no longer functional and had to be scrapped. The reported air raids killed 19 civilians, eight of them children, in the country's last major opposition bastion.

Mulally realized the future of Ford didn’t just rest with cars and trucks, but also with the technology inside them. Ford developed products and partnerships with powerhouses in the consumer electronics industry – turning cars and trucks into mobile centers of entertainment and communication that paralleled the fast growth of smartphones and social media. He literally set up real-time data sessions during which executives devised potential scenarios related to government regulations, the Ford dealer network, and shifts in customer demand.

Amazing to think that this book was written twenty years ago!

Every problem Alan identified has become WORSE

We now have major traffic jams EVERY morning and evening.
Air quality is now FREQUENTLY a serious health threat.
And Global Warming now THREATENS the entire world.

The solutions he recommends are all still totally valid.

But even in Portland (that has done better than most cities)
the car is an INCREASING threat to our quality of life.

This book should be read by EVERY car driver.

This exceptional book makes it enjoyable and quick to understand what's wrong with how we currently design our towns and cities: making them easier to drive through, rather than making them better to actually be in! Durning provides clear examples and suggests concrete steps for making things better, all the while keeping it simple and human, not dry and technical. A must for citizens and local officials interested in addressing traffic problems and building more livable communities. (See also The Geography of Nowhere, by J. H. Kunstler.)

First recommendation of Alan Durning: read the book in a bus. Last recomendation: give the book to the person next to you in the same bus. He has reflexion not only about transportation but also for urban planning, and how to avoid policies that in a middle term affect your transportation.

By far the best indictment of cities built for cars, this pithy, straight-shooting, quick read is full of logical solutions to car addiction. Bristling with facts about the actual cost of cars and car infrastructure, moved along by the success story of Vancouver, B.C.'s West End, suggestions for improving cities livability run the gamut from city planning solutions, to innovative ideas for auto insurance. This book is an indisputable must for city planners, developers, politicians and citizens concerned about the livability of their cities. It's themes are applicable well outside of the Northwest.
