Interesting book with some good points though boring in some parts. This collection of essays looks at several cities within and outside the US and how their patterns of davir, traffic, and industry including tourism affect the people who live and work there.

I liked the “faster than a walk, slower than a train, often slightly higher than a person” passage from the introduction, but lost interest shortly thereafter. America is a car-nation, that is for sure and David Byrne is a brave adventurer to venture into the heart of some of these places.

Oct 11, Keith rated it it was amazing. Some phrases sounded like they could easily be shouted over some fancy syncopated percussion and be a Talking Heads song. I guess he’s good at putting his thoughts into the ambiguous and metaphorical terms well-suited to song, but when he tries to spell them out in writing and “back them up with supporting evidence,” well, he should leave it to those who understand the supporting evidence well enough to say something meaningful and interesti What a complete disappointment.

I was a Talking Heads fan too, and even a liberal in most scenarios I’ve seen few reviews that cover what to me wound up being the essential aspect of this book: A quick and easy read, and actually goes well with the various bus rides.
