John Lyon's Advanced Driving book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Advanced Driving: How to further skill and enjoyment in motoring (Paperback)
The best book I have ever read on Advanced Driving (and in 35 years or so of "advanced driving" I have read all that I have been aware of). I think it's helpful if the reader is already a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists or similar, and has read and understood Roadcraft - The Police Driver's Handbook, but not essential. The "Voice of Experience" anecdotes in separate boxes make it unique, and I found it easy to read.
John does get a bit technical on skidding, and it's helpful to understand the physics of forces acting on a moving vehicle, but I thought it was good that this information (and other information in other chapters) was brought into the public domain, which some authorities may have been reluctant to do.
I was taught by John Lyon quite a number of years ago now, and he is the finest road driver I have ever sat beside. The book was, in a way, a refresher course, as it reminded me of several points I had forgotten about or had not been applying!
