About the Author:

David LaBua is a writer, and licensed psychotherapist. Over the last 10 years, he realized that his spending 10 minutes a day looking for parking added up to 500 hours, or 28 solid days of wasted time. His curiosity, insight, love of laughter, and his love of finding solutions to problems have been woven together, creating an illuminating, humorous, in-depth exploration of, and practical guide to the infamous San Francisco parking experience.

Review:

We didn't believe him so we put him to the test...and he did it!
-NBC Bay Area News

When David LaBua first came by Green Apple to see if we could carry his self-published guide to all things parking in San Francisco, our first reaction was, Oh, that's nice. But in no time, he had a small crowd gathered around him as he answered questions on such arcana as: when is it necessary to curb your wheels? How far away from a parking sign can you be before that sign no longer applies to your car? What recourse is there when one's car gets towed? What is the capital of Assyria? This is an incredibly thorough and well-researched book.
-Green Apple Bookstore, San Francisco

When I first heard about it, I thought there was no way that somebody could write an entire book about parking in San Francisco. But this guy has actually done it. This is a cool little book!
--Greg Sherwood - KQED Radio

This toolbox of a book will truly help you find those sweet parking spots, LaBua has thought of everything from meter-ology, and parking-sign language, to tow woes, cheerfully counseling you in parking savvy. The friendly format reveals a system of order that helps navigate the parking system of San Francisco peacefully and effectively. With tongue-in-cheek-charm and a crisp writing style (that would make E.B. White smile) David has created a little gem of a book that will be indispensable to anyone who ever has to drive and park in San Francisco.
--Susan Wooldridge, Author of Poem Crazy and Fool's Gold

Finding the Sweet Spot is literally worth its weight in gold. Not only has it saved me hundreds of dollars in DPT parking fines, but also has saved me time, and quite possibly my marriage.
