"Towles presents a sort of anti-TED Talk (unpretentious, low-tech, and actually meaningful) full of stories from the perspective of several Metro bus drivers he interviewed. The stories are incredible, and they reveal these bus drivers to be sages, tricksters, and masters of social interaction... Go hear Towles tell these stories of violence, compassion, and resilience. Go learn these peoples' names." -- Rich Smith, The Stranger Weekly
