Today's Sydney Morning Herald has a great article on my book by Jacob Saulwick.
Tomorrow morning (Jan 5 in Sydney) it appears I'll be interviewed on 2GB 873 AM -- Sydney's largest talk radio station and the home of the notorious Alan Jones -- at 8:10 AM. It looks like it will be streamed live here.
So far, Sydney media are reacting only to one chapter, where I compare Sydney and San Francisco on the basis of network complexity (extreme in Sydney, far less in San Francisco). My point is that Sydney's network is built on a fear of every asking anyone to change buses, and this results in a massively complex network where many infrequent lines overlap on each major street, each doing something just slightly different. Chapter 12 of my book compares a typical set of transit directions from inner city Sydney with those from the rational grid network of San Francisco, to some comic effect. I'll probably read that bit on the air.
Also, bravo to Kerrie Leishman from the Sydney Morning Herald for this great graphic which nicely captures my point!
