Summary

From the star of the YouTube sensation Jason Drives, the senior editor of the acclaimed website Jalopnik, and a producer of Jay Leno’s Garage comes the wittiest and most insightful guide yet to self-driving cars and the road ahead.
 
Self-driving cars sound fantastical and futuristic and yet they’ll soon be on every street in America. Whether it’s Tesla’s Autopilot, Google’s Waymo, Mercedes’s Distronic, or Uber’s modified Volvos, companies around the world are developing autonomous cars. But why? And what will they mean for the auto industry and humanity at large?
 
In Robot, Take the Wheel, famed automotive expert Jason Torchinsky gives a colorful account of the development of autonomous vehicles and their likely implications. Torchinsky encourages us to think of self-driving cars as an entirely new machine, something beyond cars as we understand them today. He considers how humans will get along with these robots that will take over our cars’ jobs, what they will look like, what sorts of jobs they may do, what we can expect of them, how they should act, ethically, how we can trick them and have fun with them, and how we can make sure there’s still a place for those of us who love to drive, especially with a manual transmission.
 
This vibrant volume brims with insider information. It explores what’s ahead and considers what we can do now to shape the automated future.

    This 3300-word article on Debtors Anonymous originally appeared in The New York Times Magazine.  
    Debtors Anonymous is a 12-Step self-help program modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous that helps its members recover from past debts, negotiate with and pay off all their creditors on a humane and manageable schedule, increase income, and avoid incurring any new unsecured debt going forward.  
    It enables its members to get free of debt and the act of debting and stay free forever, one day at a time.  
    While the subject is debt, the deeper issue at Debtors Anonymous is the quality of life. Becoming free of debt and trouble with money leads to profound changes. Members regain control of their own lives, get back self-esteem, and liberate themselves from fear. Prosperity enters their lives, not just financially, but, for many, in everything from their response to a sunny day to the quality of their relationships.  
    This article explains with examples and quotes from members what Debtors Anonymous is, how it works, what it can do for its members, and how you can participate in it.
