Sample Book Insights:

#1 The rise of the automobile is closely connected to the transformation of American cities, which Jacobs and many others lament. But the connection is not a straightforward one; it is a joke that history plays on progress.

#2 The noise of vehicles is something that cannot be understated. It is a side-drum tattoo of wheels on cobbles that jars from the apex of one set to the next like sticks dragging along a fence.

#3 The explosion of automobile use in the twentieth century was not a simple consequence of consumer demand. It was in large part a consequence of government policy choices.

#4 The Volvo Concept 26 is a concept car that takes on different configurations, rearranging the furniture for a drive mode, create mode, and relax mode. The idea is that because you are not burdened with the drudgery of driving, you are free to be creative.
