“If you’ve ever tried to get from one place to another in South Florida, you will love this book.”

– T.D. Allman, author of Miami: City of the Future

“Hold on to your roof mattresses: Making Good Time is a loving, alarming, definitive collection of only-in-Miami road tales. Some of South Florida’s most treasured writers tackle one of its true miseries—and now I’m nostalgic for I-95 traffic.”

– Kenny Malone, Co-host of NPR’s Planet Money

Making Good Time” takes us inside a car broken down on the side of an off-ramp, a divorce occurring in real time on a county bus, and a house being robbed by boat. A collection of wonderful true stories, the book imaginatively illustrates how our cities, infrastructures, and the way we get around shape our destinies and our lives.”

– Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class
