Editorial Reviews

'A lively, engaging book...which uses neoclassical economic principles...in a digestible format. The authors go so far as to draw from the film "Thelma and Louise" to show how game theory can be applied in predicting whether someone will drive or take public transit.  This provocative, highly relevant book deserves to be on the bookshelf of everyone concerned with urban planning and transportation.'  Robert Cervero, Professor and Chair Department of City and Regional Planning University of California, Berkeley
