Book reviews

I often write reviews of books. It’s unpaid work but it’s still rewarding because it’s fun, I get to know things, and I get the book for free from the publisher. Books are also better than academic papers because they are written for readers, not for reviewers. There’s also something subversive about reading printed books while everyone else is staring at their phones.

My reviews have been published in several academic journals. I am also a regular contributor to the LSE Review of Books. My reviews are not only about transport. I like to read and write about other things, especially local and global environmental problems.
