|Summary, etc.:|| You probably drive on a daily basis. Driving should be a pleasurable experience-- but it is also one of the most dangerous.

He provides a history of driving, a crash-course in the physics of motion, and provides tips for greater control and safer, more efficient and fun experiences behind the wheel.
