The Road More Traveled: Why the Congestion Crisis Matters More Than You Think, and what We Can Do about it
Though often dismissed as a minor if irritating nuisance, congestion's insidious effects constrain our personal and professional lives, making it harder to find a good job, spend time with our family, and maintain profitable businesses. After centuries of building our cities into bustling centers of commerce and culture, we are beginning to slow down. The Road More Traveled shines a new light on the problem of traffic congestion in this easily accessible book. You'll learn how we can reclaim our mobility if we are willing to follow successful examples from overseas, where innovations in infrastructure and privatization have made other nations stronger and more competitive. By thoroughly debunking the myths that keep our policy makers trapped in traffic, the book argues that we can and should build our way out of congestion and into a fast-paced future.

Read all the way through on a cross-country flight. An excellent answer to the bleatings of the transit dorks. Gave me information I was not aware of even as a regular follower of these issues (eg the relatively large amount of recent road innovation in Europe).
