5.0 out of 5 stars Better Thinking Skills Will Prevent Crashes, 24 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Mind Driving: New Skills for Staying Alive on the Road (Paperback)
Excellent! The best road safety manual you'll ever read! As the title implies, this book is all about encouraging drivers to become thinking drivers; it is about cooperating with other road users; it is about managing risk, not apportioning blame; and, most importantly, it is about the one thing missing from driver training today - EDUCATION.
"...the true Education element of road safety has been given the least opportunity to contribute", says the author.

Stephen Haley presents the reader, in Skill 1 (`chapter' is replaced by the word `skill'), with a set of beliefs. For example:

"Safe driving is in my thinking. It is about actively managing risk with the decisions I make." (belief 2)
"Preventing a collision is more important than who would be to blame for it." (belief 3)

This book is for everyone:

*Teachers in schools educating the drivers of the future
*ADIs and anyone involved in driver training
*Those who drive regularly as part of their work
*Those who drive the kids to school, do the shopping and visit friends
*Those who passed their driving test long ago, whether or not they have had an accident in that time
*Confident drivers
*Timid drivers
*Advanced drivers
*Novice drivers
*Elderly drivers

Society needs this book. BUY IT! READ IT! LIVE BY IT!
