"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning." -- James Joyce
Interesting. I may pick this one up. I just finished a shorter and probably far less rigorous book, "Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save the Economy" by Elly Blue. The subtitle is of course hyperbole, and I think she overstates her case in places, but it has some pretty interesting statistics and anecdotes.
