CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.99 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

A behind-the-scenes look at the robustly competitive race to dominate the market for electric cars, the larger-than-life moguls behind them, and the changes that are transforming the auto industry.

In the 1980s, it was unimaginable that the home computer would become as common and easy to use as a toaster. Today, plug-in charging stations and smart grids seem like something still far off in the future. But by 2020, the auto industry will look very different from today’s field of troubled auto giants. The combination of technological breakthroughs and charging networks driven by global warming and peak oil makes it clear that revolutionary change in the auto industry is happening right now.

In High Voltage, Jim Motavalli captures this period of unprecedented change, documenting the evolution from internal combustion engines to electric power. Driven by the auto world’s ambitious and sometimes outlandish personalities, the book chronicles the race to dominate the market, focusing on big players like Tesla and Fisker, as well as a tiny start-up and a battery supplier. Flashing forward to the changes we’ll see in the coming years, High Voltage shows a not-so-distant future where we will live on a smart grid, our cars “fueling,” that is, charging, while we shop or sleep. The ramifications of these changes will be on a grander scale than most of us ever imagined—altering foreign policy, reducing trade deficits, and perhaps even ending global warming.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $13.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

In the same way that Michael Pollan’s slim best-seller Food Rules brought a gust of common sense to the everyday activity of eating, Just Ride is a revelation. Forget the ultralight, uncomfortable bikes, flashy jerseys, clunky shoes that clip onto tiny pedals, the grinding out of endless miles. Instead, ride like you did when you were a kid—just get on your bike and discover the pure joy of riding it.

A reformed racer who’s commuted by bike every day since 1980, Grant Petersen shares a lifetime of unexpected facts, controversial opinions, expert techniques and his own maverick philosophy. His company, Rivendell Bicycle Works, makes bikes for riders ready to opt out of a culture overrun by racing, and his writings and opinions have appeared in major bicycling and outdoor magazines.

Effective Cycling is an essential handbook for cyclists from beginner to expert, whether daily commuters or weekend pleasure trippers. This thoroughly updated seventh edition offers cyclists the information they need for riding a bicycle under all conditions: on congested city streets or winding mountain roads, day or night, rain or shine. It describes the sheer physical joy of cycling and provides the nuts-and-bolts details of how to choose a bicycle, maintain it, and use it in the most efficient manner. Effective Cycling covers the bicycle itself, repairs and maintenance, basic and advanced cycling skills, and how traffic is organized. It describes cycling with friends, bicycle tours, increasing physical endurance, racing, and even finding a cyclist as marriage partner. Throughout, author John Forester emphasizes that cyclists should consider themselves drivers of vehicles in traffic. That means obeying the rules of the road, because when all drivers obey the same rules, they don't have collisions. Forester explains why cyclists should not be afraid to cycle in traffic, and he urges them to resist being shunted off into government-sponsored bike paths as if they were incompetent children. Cyclists fare best, he says, when they act and are treated as drivers of vehicles. Effective Cycling will help owners of bicycles dusty from disuse become active cyclists and veteran cyclists improve their techniques and achieve their cycling goals. Each section moves from basic to advanced topics; readers are encouraged get on a bicycle and practice each activity after reading about it.

Did you know you can power a truck on wood scraps? Drive around for free, using a gasifier you can build yourself!

Wayne Keith's proven gasification system has carried him nearly 300,000 miles on renewable, clean-burning wood fuel. After 10 years and nine converted trucks, he knows a thing or two about gasifiers. Now he's written his experience and time-tested system into a book of plans! Here's your chance to save time and money with a design that works.

Have Wood Will Travel includes all the info you need for building and operating a Keith gasifier. These are step-by-step plans with photos, diagrams and helpful tips along the way. Instead of basic blueprints, you get an up-close look at how Keith puts the gasifier together, which materials to use and how to size the system to your specific vehicle. You'll also find extensive instructions on the operation and maintenance of your finished gasifier. As a bonus, there's an overview of the tractor-powered wood chunker Keith uses to process his fuel.

All this info and more is available online, to premium members at the Drive on Wood! website (driveonwood.com). Six months of premium access is included free with the purchase of the book.
