This is an excellent book for learning the "finer" points of high speed driving. The techniques and approach to the subject apply to both racing and street driving. This is a great book to read first if you want to learn to drive better, or if you wish to read more about the subject, it is a great base to start from.

Racing cars is my life, frankly, and I always welcome the opportunity to learn at the feet of people who know more than me. I bought this book hoping to learn more about race driving techniques and mentalities, and I'm sure that if you are relatively inexperienced in such matters, this book will provide some insight.
It wasn't quite what I was expecting (an entire chapter is devoted to the definition of the word 'tigering', which I thought was a little long-winded) So why the five stars? This book is a brilliant step back in time, written by a breezy and conversational style by an all-round great guy who used to co-pilot for Stirling Moss. By it and step back in time. I know I'll keep coming back it over time, just for fun.

This book , by Denis Jenkinson is one of the great motor racing books which nobody with an interest in motor racing should be without . Jenkinson was one of a tiny elite group of truly great motoring writers of the twentieth century whose insight and quality of writing will probably never be equalled . Motor racing journalists who misguidedly think themselves the equal of the legendary 'Jenks' overestimate their skills and abilities drastically .

I haven't actually read this book yet so this review might be a bit frivolous. However, the book is something of an icon in the world of motoring and motor racing, as is Dennis Jenkinson, the author. Ergo, it is a good book to have on the bookshelf of one is minded to read of such things, which I am.
