  • The first complete history about the development of freeways in Los Angeles

  • Written by a local author with a successful track record (10,000 Steps in L.A.)

  • Significant journalists and historians will contribute endorsements and a well-known Angeleno will write the foreword.

  • While the core audience will definitely be fans of Automotive Pop Culture and the History of Los Angeles, plenty of readers interested in Transportation, Civil Engineering, and the development of the automobile will purchase the book.

  • The two editions of Paul Haddad’s previous book, 10,000 Steps a Day in L.A., have sold nearly 15,000 copies and sales are still climbing from the second edition released last year.
