Going from a motorsports hero to a regular working man – details a very different perception of driving and one that takes a more practical and everyday approach. Traffic really delves into the idea behind the daily commute and gets into the mind’s eye of all of us on the road each day. One of the most interesting parts of this piece is how it delves into the psychology behind the traffic and how all of us change when we sit behind the wheel. Why does traffic happen? Why do we become more aggressive when behind the wheel? And are we as good drivers as we think we are?
The Bad Driver’s Handbook – Zack Arnstein and Larry Arnstein
We’ve all been there. When contending with multiple lanes of traffic only to watch some bolshy driver zoom all the way from the left to the right-hand lane – causing a cacophony of horns in its wake. Bad drivers are everywhere, and did you ever notice they only seem to come out at the weekend? This is a take on driving flipped on its head by 2 people who took a total of 7 times to pass their driving test. They take the idea of a good and bad driver and delve into the meaning behind it and it talks about some of the bad driving decisions we all see around us every day. This book serves as a guide on what NOT to do on the roads.
