Questions for January's Book Club Contest - "Door to Door: The Magnificent, Maddening, Mysterious World of Transportation," by Edward Humes

This contest has since ended; answers to questions are listed below.  Thank you for your interest, and please feel free to check out our February 2017 Book Club selection.

For the January 2017 Book Club selection,  TransportiCA has chosen Door to Door: The Magnificent, Maddening, Mysterious World of Transportation, by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and prolific author, Edward Humes.

With every month's selection, TransportiCA provides three questions based-upon the reading.  If you send us all three correct responses by the end of the month, and your name is drawn, you will win a copy of the book, signed by the author.

The contest questions for Door to Door are:

1. Carmageddon was invented to bring relief to the most traffic-jammed highway in America. Instead, rush hour traffic is worse than ever.

2. True or False: The logistics involved in just one day of global goods movement dwarfs the Normandy invasion and the Apollo moon missions combined.

3. Angel's Gate is where America's commute truly begins, aboard ships piled fifteen stories high with cargo containers, each far safer than your car and the largest of them each hauling enough products to stock five Costco warehouse stores.


To send-in your responses, submit via TransportiCA's "Contact Form" on the front-page (bottom left), sending your name, email address and answers.  The deadline for submission is 23:59, Tuesday, 31 January 2017.

Thank you for your interest in the Book Club, and best of luck with the contest!
