But “Why We Drive” is about driving like “Moby-Dick” is about whaling. ... Crawford has something important to say." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"One of the most original and mind-opening studies of practical philosophy to have appeared for many years." (John Gray, UnHerd)
"Absorbing. ... Why We Drive is about a freedom that is being lost to the cynics of surveillance.. ... A defense of felt life against the intrusions of the technocrats. ... Plain funny. (New Statesman)
"A passionate appeal to the importance of the autonomous individual in the face of the dehumanizing pressure of automation. ... This book will have you pining for the freedom the open road." (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

While the book shifts tone and topics from chapter to chapter in sometimes disjointed ways, "Why We Drive" is passionate and thought-provoking, and comes together nicely as a whole. For anyone who enjoys driving, or even for those who simply enjoy their independence and value the ingenuity and creativity of the human mind, this is highly recommended.
