Discover why getting rid of your car may be the soundest and sanest lifestyle change you can make.

Reviews:

"Chris Balish offers a mix of the practical-a worksheet to figure out a car's total cost and impact-as well as the horrifying: The average American walks just 300 yards a day."-Sierra Magazine

"If ever there was a practical inducement to get out of the car trap, this is it. For the multitude of Americans stuck in traffic and spending thousands of dollars a year on their cars, Chris's lively and pragmatic step-by-step solutions provide a way out."-Jane Holtz Kay, author of Asphalt Nation
