Ten Speed Press describes the books as:

“The first practical, accessible, and sensible guide to living in North America without owning a car. • Exposes the true costs of car ownership and shows how getting rid of your car can simplify your life and put you on the road to financial freedom. • Packed with realistic, economical alternatives to owning a car, including chapters on carsharing, carpooling, and even car-free dating. • Includes more than 100 real-world tips, strategies, and success stories from people who are happily car-free or “car-lite,” from cities to suburbs. • According to a 2004 American Automobile Association study, the average American spends $8,410 per year (roughly $700 per month) to own a vehicle.”

    I am nearing 1 year without a car and using I-GO. Honestly, 90% of the time I Love not having to deal with a car—gas, maintenance, prking, just the hassles. However, there is that 10% that I miss not having “my” car waiting for me whenever I want to use it and staying out as long as I want to drive it… I usually get over the 10% of missing it when I talk to friends who still own cars. I will continue to not own and live well:)
