I wouldn't say that I have a thing for rickshaws in particular. But this book is a big, full color testament to the resourcefulness, ingenuity and creativity that may be the very best traits of human beings. I really loved the diagrams which showed how the various vehicles were designed and put together. Crafty, beautiful genius shines through every page.

Fascinating biographical sketches with accompanying photos describing the lives of rickshaw drivers in major cities around the world. Beautifully written, photographed, and eye-opening.
