The Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels – Robert Penn

I never imagined that my subscription to “The Economist” would be a reference to good bicycling books but in the latest edition this review appeared.  Looks like a good one.  Amazon doesn’t seem to carry the title in North America it but I think Penguin Canada might have it (click on the image and then zoom in to read it).  Interestingly, I’ve noticed several articles in “The Economist” in the last couple of years about the bicycle as part of a sustainable economic development solution for large metropolitan areas.  Apparently radical new thinking for the stuffed shirts at the venerable old public policy rag.  Is the world actually waking up from it’s insane obsession with all things internally combustible?
