Today's Show: Country Driving

3:30pm EST - Change can be a great thing, but when it happens rapidly, how does it effect society? Peter Hessler, Beijing correspondent for The New Yorker, joins us this afternoon to talk about his new book, Country Driving: A Journey Through China from Farm to Factory. In it, he discusses the process in getting his Chinese drivers license and his journey, traveling the Chinese countryside, tracking how the change in infrastructure was transforming China and how the Chinese people are adapting to such widespread change.
