Raleigh (I-Newswire) October 22, 2012 - High Speed Rail Advocates Announce New Book
On October 1, the high-speed rail industry's first, most comprehensive and fully illustrated book, Fast Trains - America's High Speed Future, was released. The publication team consists of a two highly regarded high-speed rail advocates, a veteran marketing communications expert, and an award-winning photographer.
Fast Trains was inspired in part by of the surge of popularity, interest and ridership in rail travel as Americans overwhelmingly support advancements and investment in public transportation. In many countries, people are travelling by high-speed trains at 186 miles per hour and higher. They are escaping the woes of long automobile commutes, gridlocked traffic, and the indignities of post-9/11 air travel and, instead, experiencing levels of convenience, comfort, amenities, and service not available to automobile and air travelers.
This book seeks to stimiulate public interest in high-speed rail by focusing on the vast economic, environmental and lifestyle benefits of having a world-class high-speed rail system throughout America. Fast Trains foretells a bright future for high-speed rail through the use of vignettes that compare trips by automobile or airplane in the United States with high-speed rail trips elsewhere.
Author Emy Louie, is the director of public outreach for the United States High Speed Rail Association (USHSR), a national non-profit organization that aims to build public, business and political support for a nationwide high-speed rail system. Thomas Hart, partner at Quarles & Brady law firm in Washington D.C., advocates for high-speed rail policy and legislation for USHSR. Co-author Nancy Bolts is a veteran marketing communications expert and president of Bolts Creative Communications. Bruce Johnson, the story designer, is a former correspondent for the New York Times and the Associated Press and has been nominated twice for a Pulitzer Prize for his photojournalism work. All four share a passion for making high-speed rail a reality in the United States. "Our goal is to remind the American public of the importance of this issue," said Louie. "We know a book is an effective way to really speak to people, and I'm confident in our team of experts to reach out to the public."
Four months after its May 21 release in e-book form this year, Fast Trains became the top ranked and one of the top 25 best-selling books in its category on Amazon.com. “The book tells intriguing narratives from the point of view of the authors as well as characters,” said co-author Nancy Bolts. “It makes an emotional connection with the public and arouses the imagination of an America with modern high-speed rail moving transportation into the 21st Century,” said co-author Bolts.
