Traffic by Tom Vanderbilt

Burned-Out Medic wrote a post a little over three years ago about a book he suggested everyone read. Traffic:Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us).

I always enjoy a good read, and usually have two books in rotation.

Lately I’ve been a fan of Malcolm Gladwell and Gavin de Becker. That is also where I get ideas for the next book to read: from authors citing books in their writings.

Somehow, Traffic: came up in a conversation, and I remembered the post from Burned-Out Medic.

So I bought the book.

And I can’t put it down.

Everyone should read this book.


Those are all Amazon links, but I’m not an affiliate or anything like that. I don’t get paid if you buy those books through my link. But you should buy them anyway.


  1. THANK YOU! I knew I had learned about this book from one of the medical blogs, but I couldn’t remember which one. I owe the Burned Out One a thank you, now I can deliver it.
