Product description


"Robot, Take The Wheel is an entertaining yet serious examination of what automation is and how it applies to our favorite pastime: driving."

"It's a great book. I encourage you to check it out."
--In Wheel Time

"One of my favorite guests on the Tonight Show was an astronaut named Story Musgrave. Although not as famous as Neil Armstrong or Buzz Aldrin, Story was not only an astronaut, he was also a physicist, an academic, and a philosopher. He could translate space travel into words and pictures that people could really understand. I like to think of Jason as my automotive astronaut, able to take his experiences and really make the reader feel like they are riding along with him. Jason is a unique blend of dork, car guy, and intellectual all rolled into one."
--Jay Leno, host of Jay Leno's Garage and former host of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno
