Publisher's Summary

A lively, captivating investigation into the infrastructure that makes society possible
In our daily lives, we're surrounded by wires, pipes, utility poles, cell phone towers, and myriad other infrastructure that facilitates almost everything we do. Even though these systems are essential, when was the last time you gave them much thought? In On the Grid, Scott Huler sets out to understand all of the systems that shape our society - from transportation, water, and garbage to the Internet coming through our cable lines.
A mesmerizing and hilarious narrative, On the Grid is filled with amazing insights, interviews, and stories that bring an overlooked but indispensable subject to life. You'll never look at your day the same way again.

Amazing!

If you ever wondered where your water, electricity, or municipal services come from... this will answer all your questions. Written by a normal guy who asked those same questions and struck out to find the answers for himself. 5-star narration by Bronson Pinchot!

The reader did a great job but the book wasn't as interesting as I had hoped. It was semi interesting.
