A must read for ALL drivers of any vehicles,
This review is from: Mind Driving: New Skills for Staying Alive on the Road (Paperback)
I passed my driving test 10 months ago, I bought this book within a week of passing my test. The book is certainly worth paying a few pounds for as it could really save your life or someone elses.
As a novice driver I have come across quite a lot of really bad driving already, to the point where I now think that all drivers should have some form of re-test every 10 years or at the very minimum be forced to go to and listen to a one day lecture on safer driving and thinking.
Until that time all drivers should read this book at least once, the book shows you that driving is not something you just do automatically with your limbs you should be useing your brain to THINK about your actions and that of other road users.
A good bit of advice from the book talks about driving as a team, we are all on a team even though the other drivers may change along the way, but the ultimate aim of the team is to ensure that you and your fellow team members all get home safely.
There is so much advice and so much to think about when you are driving that you will wonder why this is not part of the driving test as standard. I quite often dip into the book to refresh my thinking about certain driving aspects.

Mattie, I shall be recommending that all my clients, learner drivers, novice drivers and experienced drivers, read your review of this wonderful book. I want them to understand, from someone who has so recently experienced passing the driving test, that not only will this book help their driving experience, but that being a thinking driver is the most important thing, as opposed to mere vehicle control, which is so often seen as the thing which demonstrates driving skill. Driving skill is in your thinking, which is what Mind Driving is all about, and you have clearly understood that, Mattie. Well done.
