So, suitably motivated and armed with a copy of this book, I settled down to see if I may yet possess the ability to improve on my GuyDrivingSkills.
Well, I can report that my insurance premium hasn't risen again, my penis is exactly the same length as it was before I read this book but my wife no longer demands to drive when we're in the car together. So clearly I've learned something and shall be forever in debt to the author for launching the Italian-British racing team that my wife and I are now forming.
Look out, Monaco, here we come!!!!
Go on, buy the book and see if you don't pick up some useful tips. I did.
The book was badly in need of an editor and consisted of nothing more than a collection of the author's anecdotes, and more often than not, examples of his own very questionable driving techniques. The language used was colloquial and the whole book, which only took about an hour to read, was poorly laid out, unstructured and badly written.
I will give an example of the questionable wisdom portrayed within, which I have chosen at random. On page 61, in a section entitled "Freeway Driving", the author states:
"Unfortunately, with speeding comes radar and of course "the boys". The truth of the matter is, I got myself in more trouble with anything else than I did when I had a radar detector".
That is written exactly as it appears in the book! It demonstrates the author's poor grasp of English, his arrogance and his clear contempt for the law all in two sentences! Unfortunately, the whole book is like this!
I have a large collection of over 150 instructional driving books and this book is, without a shadow of a doubt, the worst book that I have ever read on the subject.
Highly recommend this book if you want to know more about driving safe but also driving fast

Ribeiro hews a path out of the dense jungle of common misperceptions and false assumptions
to deliver a cutting edge driving technology on par with holographic imaging.
This book is a mental re-boot that will empower any driver, with any skill level, to up their inner
and outer game and become more skilled at navigating any traffic situation in any condition.
More importantly, getting armed with skill and knowledge will make you a safer driver and may even
save your life.
Read this book and the only thing in your rear view mirror will be a wake of domination based on total control.
You are buying a car or a car salesman.
You like taking risks or you just want to avoid them.
You want to learn something new or just confirm you are doing it right.
You have any connection to cars in anyway you will get something from this book.
Mr Ribeiro makes his points fast and furious and moves on to the next chapter. This book has a wealth of info. Not just about cars and driving. But daily life as well. You will get more out of life and your driving will go to a whole new level. Yes it is that good!
This book uncovered many of the unknown secrets to the art of driving that I was totally unaware of. I've already bought additional copies to give to my friends and family and would recommend it to anyone that wants to be a safer,smarter more perceptive driver. It might even prevent you from getting a ticket or two.
Great job... great book.
Anyhow, it certainly has a LOT of insight into different areas of driving, philosophy, theory etc. For me, it was kind of like...The Art of War meets the Driving manual. Definitely got lots from this book. Highly recommend!
