I expected StrapHanger to be more about mass transit than a mix of walking/biking/bus/rail. I liked the chapter by chapter organization by cities. There were comparisons throughout though which meant I got to read about New York City in multiple places. Interesting history of how mass transit got to be the way it is in different places. A bit gloomy for the future of US mass transit. But facts are facts...
