Why We Drive is a rebellious and daring celebration of the human spirit and the competence of ordinary people by the bestselling author of The Case for Working with Your Hands.
Once we were drivers on the open road.
Today we are more often in the back seat of an Uber.
As we hurtle toward a 'self-driving' future, are we destined to become passengers in our own lives too?
In Why We Drive, the philosopher and mechanic Matthew Crawford celebrates the risk, skill and freedom of driving. He reveals what we are losing to technology and government control in the modern world, and speaks up for play, dissent and occasionally being scared witless.
