WHY WE DRIVE Toward a Philosophy of the Open Road

by | Read by Ron Butler

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Ron Butler's narration of this meditation on the meaning of driving takes listeners by the lapels and gently shakes their preconceived notions. His smoothly instructive and carefully paced rendition of this audiobook gives life to this examination of the assumption that a problem's technological solution--whether it's cameras on street lights, autonomous autos, or smart cities--comes without a cost to our individuality. Crawford owns about six vehicles, cars and motorcycles, in various states of repair and sees real value in taking them apart and putting them back together and in indulging in the lure of the open road. At the conclusion of this audiobook, Butler delivers the thesis of Crawford's thought-provoking cri de coeur: "To drive is to exercise one's skill at being free."
