"A terrific resource and a powerful argument to ditch your car and get out on foot, bike, or public transit. Breezy in tone and full of savory bites of information . . . provides snappy descriptions of what you'll find in neighborhoods all over Chicago. Rothstein provides sound advice without sounding priggish. This is a perfect book for these times." —Debra Shore, commissioner, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District
"Very timely . . . offers practical not preachy up-to-date advice about getting along, even thriving, in the Windy City without owning a car. Rothstein coolly lays out some real benefits of selling your car: more cash and better health; more free time and less stress; a cleaner environment and a more human-scale city. The sound and sensible points do not call for sacrifice or suffering and are convincing, especially considering that they come from a self-confessed car lover. This book will change the way you think about cars. It might even change your life." —Greg Borzo, author, The Chicago "L"
"The most comprehensive guide to getting around Chicago I've ever seen, covering every aspect of travel. It's an invaluable resource for visitors and residents alike—really, anyone who wants to get around the city. Even those of us who still rely on cars." —Andrew Huff, author, Gapers Block
