Chris Balish, - - - a television journalist and former owner of a large and expensive SUV, decided to ditch his behemoth, get into shape, and protect the environment all at the same time. This personal finance/self-help book tells the story of his transformation and what he learned in the process of going car-free. Imagine an extra $8,410 in your pocket every year. (That's what the average American spends on owning a car.) Balish's tome is a how-to book for people seeking a less stressful and more financially secure lifestyle. He isn't against driving the occasional rental car or joining a local car-sharing club. But his argument for bikes, transit, and a car-free lifestyle is convincing and, in practice, very doable. (Full disclosure: This reviewer's been car-free for five years now and can vouch that Balish reveals all the best-kept secrets of the car-free leisure class.)
