The Barnes & Noble Review

From the moment I heard about it, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Tom Vanderbilt's new book about traffic. I'm sure I wasn't the only one. Haven't we all pondered the mysteries of traffic endlessly (at least, it feels endless when you're stuck in it)? After all, traffic is as pervasive as the common cold, except bigger, more relevant. Even the sickliest among us comes down with colds only intermittently.
