Few inventions have transformed our country—and the world—quite like the automobile. With transportation suddenly readily available, travel stopped being an expensive dream and became the everyday norm. Now, everyone has taken at least one state-hopping or cross-country road trip, and mini weekend out-of-town vacations are how we all relax. In the pages of The Rise and Fall of the Machine that Made the Modern World, you can delve into the history of how the car became so ubiquitous and a mainstay of our modern culture, and enjoy gorgeous colored and black-and-white pictures that depict some of the most iconic and memorable vehicles ever created—from the first Model T Ford to the Tesla Model S, and countless more between. It’s the book that every car lover has to own.
