“The authors paint an intriguing story of what might be right around the corner for many of us in the near future. Knowing the auto industry, some of what’s envisioned is already in the pipeline or being deployed now. And much of what isn’t already in the works will be here even sooner than we think.” —Chad Jacoby, Auto Industry Professional
