This review is from: Mind Driving: New Skills for Staying Alive on the Road (Paperback)
Hi to everyone reading this review,i teach driving as a driving instructor and must say that this is a great book for experienced drivers and novice drivers too.When you read the first chapter it may seem daunting but read on and you will have a greater understanding of other drivers on the road.This book goes into great detail about why people behave the way they do when driving.It explains very well the behaviour patterns of different types of drivers.I have a great interest in psychology and if you teach or are interested in psychology and why drivers do things they shouldn't,then this is the book for you.It gives you a great insight into this area of how the mind works and maybe it will even teach you one or two things that make it safer for you on the roads.Best book i have seen on this subject.Definately recommend " hope you.
Regards Mick Whelan

Hi there, As an IAM, (motorcyclist), member, I am wondering how this book compares to 'Roadcraft' in your opinion? Is it equal or better? I'd value an opinion!

Hi, I've also done the IAM motorcycle test and I have read Mind Driving and Roadcraft.
The two books are complementary and I would recommend reading both. Roadcraft is much more practical based e.g. road position, how to negotiate an overtaking manoeuvre etc.. Mind Driving has very little of that kind of thing but rather is more about risk management, the psychology of driving and how to learn. If you want to improve beyond IAM test level you need the skills and understanding described in Mind Driving. You may or may not have developed these for yourself already.
