Using interviews, data, and deep exploration of the hidden world of ports, traffic control centers, and the research labs defining our transportation future, acclaimed journalist Edward Humes breaks down the complex movements of humans, goods, and machines as never before, from increasingly car-less citizens to the distance UPS goes to deliver a leopard-printed phone case. Tracking one day in the life of his family in Southern California, Humes uses their commutes, traffic jams, grocery stops, and online shopping excursions as a springboard to explore the paradoxes and challenges inherent in our transportation system.

"Marc Cashman is a skillful narrator who brings accuracy and vigor to whatever he reads. Here he focuses on the present and future of transportation in all its forms--but mostly ships, trucks, and automobiles. He sounds excited as he reads about the revolution in international shipping, driven by larger and larger container ships. When the author launches into a critique of the internal combustion engine as employed by trucks, cars, and buses, the prognosis is gloomy for the environment, but Cashman is not. As we hear positive things about driverless cars and trolleys, he's still upbeat. Overall, Cashman's approach makes this audiobook both informative and enjoyable.
