If you are a baby boomer you will enjoy this book as I did. Real old school and well worth the pennies!
The book is divided into specific chapters, such as on what to wear, how to choose a motor, how to behave to other motorists, etc. It is peppered with quotes from automotive publications from the 1890s to the 1960s throughout and has many illustrations (from the same timeframe) illustrating the points.
In the style of the 'Chap' magazine (same author) you get a good dose of hillarity, although having said that women may find it a bit less gender equal than would be expected of a today's publication.
Overall a nice and humorous way to let you rethink a pretty important activity that pretty much all of us engage in on a frequent basis and make it a bit more fulfilling.
A final criticism of the Kindle edition being that a lot of hte Figures, which are properly annotated and hyperlinked, fail to display - i.e. there is a blank space where many of the pictures are supposed to be (hopefully something that will be corrected at some point).
Now she just thinks of making my tea, thank you Mr Darkwood for showing the little lady & myself for the correct way to drive
