A panoramic revisionist portrait of the nineteenth-century invention that is transforming the twenty-first-century world

"Excellent . . . calls to mind Bill Bryson, John McPhee, Rebecca Solnit."--The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)


The bicycle is a vestige of the Victorian era, seemingly at odds with our age of smartphones and ride-sharing apps and driverless cars. Yet we live on a bicycle planet. Across the world, more people travel by bicycle than any other form of transportation. Almost anyone can learn to ride a bike--and nearly everyone does.

In Two Wheels Good, journalist and critic Jody Rosen reshapes our understanding of this ubiquitous machine, an ever-present force in humanity's life and dream life--and a flash point in culture wars--for more than two hundred years. Combining history, reportage, travelogue, and memoir, Rosen's book sweeps across centuries and around the globe, unfolding the bicycle's saga from its invention in 1817 to its present-day renaissance as a "green machine," an emblem of sustainability in a world afflicted by pandemic and climate change. Readers meet unforgettable characters: feminist rebels who steered bikes to the barricades in the 1890s, a prospector who pedaled across the frozen Yukon to join the Klondike gold rush, a Bhutanese king who races mountain bikes in the Himalayas, a cycle-rickshaw driver who navigates the seething streets of the world's fastest-growing megacity, astronauts who ride a floating bicycle in zero gravity aboard the International Space Station.

Two Wheels Good examines the bicycle's past and peers into its future, challenging myths and clichés while uncovering cycling's connection to colonial conquest and the gentrification of cities. But the book is also a love letter: a reflection on the sensual and spiritual pleasures of bike riding and an ode to an engineering marvel--a wondrous vehicle whose passenger is also its engine.

Further, the print edition only includes black and white pictures in order to be able to offer the travel guide at a low cost. If this bothers you, you need to look for a different Brazil travel guide or buy the color version or e-book of I love Brazil.

    ★★★ What "I love Brazil" offers you:

    If this isn't your first "I love..." travel guide, you already know what to expect. I mostly travel as a "solo female traveler" and with my travel guides, I want to make the most beautiful places in that country approachable for individual travelers. All this in an affordable way. Thanks to "I love Brazil" you should be able to travel to Brazil without any worries, with lots of positive anticipation, and a good plan.

    After reading my travel guide, you should have a clear vision of your trip and how to get to the sights you want to see by yourself. For example, what is the easiest option to get to the spectacular Iguazu Falls (in Brazil and in Argentina)? Or how will I not get robbed in Brazil? Where is the most beautiful beach and what are the must-dos in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo? "I love Brazil" will answer those questions and many more.

    In "I love Brazil" you find all my personal experiences of my trips to Rio, Sao Paulo, Salvador, Ilha Grande, Paraty, Itacaré, Chapada Diamantina, and much more. Enjoy spectacular views, and private beaches, dance Samba or Forró with locals, drink delicious, fresh coconuts or Caipirinhas, swim in the bluest and clearest natural pools, and marvel at the biggest waterfall in the world. I planned all my trips carefully with ideas from all the good guidebooks I could find, so you don't have to spend this money anymore. Plus, I used TripAdvisor and a lot of helpful blogs. If you want to have a more personal experience than the usual tourist and have some actual explanations of how to have the best possible (and safe) experience in a place, this guidebook is definitely right for you.
