Descripción Vintage, 2009. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Trafficgets about as close to the heart of modern existence as any book could get . . . Engagingly written, meticulously researched, endlessly interesting and informative, [it] is one of those rare books that comes out of the depths of nowhere." Jonathan Yardley,The Washington Post Book World "A surprising, enlightening look at the psychology of human beings behind the steering wheels . . . Jammed with delicious you've-got-to-be-kidding moments . . . My solution to the nation's vehicular woes would be to make this good book required reading for anyone applying for a driver's license." Mary Roach,The New York Times Book Review "Smart and comprehensive . . . A shrewd tour of the much-experienced but little-understood world of driving . . . A balanced and instructive discussion on how to improve our policies toward the inexorable car . . . Vanderbilt's book is likely to remain relevant well into the new century." Edward L. Glaeser,The New Republic "A delightful tour through the mysteries and manners of driving."Tony Dokoupil,Newsweek "A breezy . . . well-researched . . . examination of the strange interaction of humanity and multiton metal boxes that can roar along at . . . 60 m.p.h. or sit for hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic." Patrick T. Reardon,Chicago Tribune "Trafficwill definitely change the way you think about driving, which also means changing the way you think about being human." Michael Agger,Slate "[A] joyride in the often surprising landscape of traffic science and psychology." Abigail Tucker,Smithsonian Magazine "Tom Vanderbilt is one of our best and most interesting writers, with an extraordinary knack for looking at everyday life and explaining, in wonderful and entertaining detail, how it really works. That's never been more true than withTraffic, where he takes a subject that we all deal with (and worry about), and lets us see it through new eyes. In the process, he helps us understand better not just the highway, but the world. It doesn't matter whether you drive or take the bus--you're going to want to read this book." --James Surowiecki, author ofThe Wisdom of Crowds "A great, deep, multidisciplinary investigation of the dynamics and the psychology of traffic jams. It is fun to read. Anyone who spends more than 19 minutes a day in traffic should read this book." --Nassim Nicholas Taleb, authorThe Black Swan "Fascinating, illuminating, and endlessly entertaining as well. Vanderbilt shows how a sophisticated understanding of human behavior can illuminate one of the modern world's most basic and most mysterious endeavors. You'll learn a lot; and the life you save may be your own." --Cass R. Sunstein, coauthor ofNudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness "Everyone who drives--and many people who don't--should read this book. It is a psychology book, a popular science book, and a how-to-save-your-life manual, all rolled into one. I found it gripping and fascinating from the very beginning to the very end." --Tyler Cowen, author ofDiscover Your Inner Economist "Fascinating, surprising . . . Vanderbilt's book will be a revelation not just to us drivers but also, one might guess, to our policy makers." Alan Moores,The Seattle Times "A well-written, important book that should hold the interest of anyone who drives a car." Dennis Lythgoe,Deseret News.

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 198 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A New York Times Notable Book One of the Best Books of the Year The Washington Post The Cleveland Plain-Dealer Rocky Mountain News In this brilliant, lively, and eye-opening investigation, Tom Vanderbilt examines the perceptual limits and cognitive underpinnings that make us worse drivers than we think we are. He demonstrates why plans to protect pedestrians from cars often lead to more accidents. He uncovers who is more likely to honk at whom, and why. He explains why traffic jams form, outlines the unintended consequences of our quest for safety, and even identifies the most common mistake drivers make in parking lots. Traffic is about more than driving: it s about human nature. It will change the way we see ourselves and the world around us, and it may even make us better drivers.
