Carjackedis an in-depth look at our obsession with cars. While the automobile's contribution to global warming and the effects of volatile gas prices are is widely known, the problems we face every day because of our cars are much more widespread and yet much less known -- from the surprising14,000 per year that the average car costs to own, to the uptick of incidences of obesity and asthma that car ownership seemingly causes, to the more than 6 million car accidents a year at a cost of230 billion.Carjacked details the complex impact of the automobile on modern society and shows us how to develop a healthier, cheaper, and greener relationship with cars.
