MindDriving by Steve Haley,
This review is from: Mind Driving: New Skills for Staying Alive on the Road (Paperback)
"MindDriving" is both educational and an interesting read. Driving is one of the most dangerous activies that people in the UK do, on a day-to-day basis. This book looks at both the practical and theory behind driving and how to make it not only safer, but more enjoyable. Afterall, many hours are spent behind the wheel during our lifetimes, we might as well enjoy it more. The book is invaluable to both professional and amateur drivers and is something that you will pick up time and time again. It's certainly not a once read only book.
The diagrams in the book help the reader to understand the more complex aspects, and the text is written with flair and knowledge by an Author who not only knows his subject, but has obviously thoroughly researched it too. Various subjects within the arena of 'driving' are covered and this makes the book something unusual on the market at the moment. The reasons 'Why' a driver does things and how to 'train' ourselves to be a better driver is worth many times the cost of the book. You often only have one chance to get it right out on the road, this book helps you to make that decision.
There are several driving books available, but none as comprehensive yet enjoyable to read as "MindDriving". Don't lend it out, as you're unlikely to get it back. It's a corker !
As an Advanced Police Driver, I recommend this book to you.
