4-0 out of 5 stars Race Engineers bible
I think i've bought this book a bit too early in my learning curve!
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Source of Vehicle Dynamic Information
Milliken lays down the fundamentals and advanced topic of vehicle dynamics as applied to racecars.The text is not for beginning or nontechnical readers in the slightest manner.Milliken points out many subtle and difficult areas to understand, which take hours of studying to fully grasp.For those seriously considering a career in this field or to the extremely interested reader, this text is the source of information.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good reference work
A very informative book on the engineering fundementals, it would be good if a second edition with more mordern race vehicles was in the works. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Few as good as this one
"Going Faster" is surely one of the best books ever written about the fundamentals of driving.While focusing on handling a car at speed on a track, each of these lessons applies to general handling in all situations.Situational awareness, looking ahead, picking the best line through a corner, understanding the car's grip and why smooth inputs matter so much.Everything is here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excelente Libro
Creo que he contado con suerte al seleccionar este libro como mi primer libro sobre conducci�n deportiva. Existen muchos libros que tratan el tema pero me dej� llevar por el buen nombre que tiene la Skip Barber Racing School y creo que hice muy bien. El libro cubre, creo yo, todo lo que en teor�a se deber�a saber a cerca de como correr en un auto de carreras, despu�s del libro s�lo queda poner en pr�ctica todas las cosas que se aprendieron, algo que obviamente es muy complicado, pero por lo menos al haber leido el libro ya te sientes con confianza de que no est�s actuando como un ser irracional al frente del volante de un auto de carreras. Yo aconsejo que lo compren y adem�s si tienen la opci�n de hacer el curso (yo no la tengo) lo hagan, creo que es uno de los m�s completos que hay en el mundo, lo digo porque he investigado el asunto por largo tiempo.

5-0 out of 5 stars an exceptional book.a must read for any serious driver.
This book is amongst the best I have ever read in terms of driving.It covers a tremendous amount of detail.This is a most read, is it not only from one of the top racing schools in the country, is allot cheaper.The information in this book is like having ten other books put together.Although this book covers almost everything it is not the only one to read. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars I Built One!
Great book, made the process straightforward and understandable. If you simply follow the steps in the book you will end up with a really good little sports car. If you also incorporate some information from Caroll Smith and Allen Staninforth's books you will have a car that will beat the pants off a Caterham.
5-0 out of 5 stars This is the beginning
I know how to weld, cut metal design and tune suspensions from scratch adapt junk to something useful the list of things I can do seems endless sometimes. Before I got this book I could do none of these things THIS is the book that gave me the bug which bit me and inspired me to learn to do all these things and to search for knowledge online in books etc. It all began with this book. This book has forced me to take back all my sarcastic cynical remarks about actually building your own car when my wife bought this book for me. It is not a perfect book If it was I wouldnt have learned half of what I do now about suspensions etc since ford cortinas are not sold here But that is part of this books charm its hook is in getting you off your back side and into the pursuit of your own personal sports car. Its been a fantastic ride and I hope you buy a copy too

5-0 out of 5 stars We all can be car builders!!!
I usually read this kind of books from cover to cover, and I did't thought it was going to be that exiting!

5-0 out of 5 stars More Proficient Motorcycling
This is different enough to Proficient Motorcycling to be worth buying. I like the overall emphasis on avoiding trouble rather than getting out of trouble. There is more emphasis on throttle control which I found helpful. I expect I'll be reading this for the next few years as I continue learning to ride and start venturing out onto the serious twisties. As with the first book, being based on magazine columns ther eis a bit of repetition and some overlap with the first but I enjoy reading it and find it very useful.

3-0 out of 5 stars General Info.
This book was also an interesting read.I was hoping for more technical information.Still, is good for new bikers and a good reminder for old ones.

5-0 out of 5 stars great read, clear explanations
I picked this book up by accident and was very impressed, and read it cover to cover in a few days.

Being a novice to Nascar I have been reading everything I can get my hands.This book, "Driving with the Devil" is "straight up".

5-0 out of 5 stars Makes drivers more human
For Nascar fans like me Poole takes us behind the scenes and gives us some idea of what the drivers are like. Beware that the stories arent all comical or anything like that. But if you're into racing, it provides a depth that humanizes the drivers, warts included.
4-0 out of 5 stars Too funny!
A fun read for all NASCAR fans!We definitely recommend it for non-serious reading!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Cover art & title are a little misleading
This is a pretty good book, but not if you're expecting stories from the current era of NASCAR stars, for example, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.Most of the stories relate to the older stars, and that's fine, but considering the cover art and the lead in for the title, I expected a little more of the "new" and a lilttle less of the "old" stories. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars How To vs. Can Do
My purpose for ordering this book was to gain the knowledge of how to do this type of work.While the "how to" is limited, the advantage to me is to learn what can be done and this book covers this well.Overall, I am pleased that I ordered it.
4-0 out of 5 stars fournier rules
This book paid for itself at page 3 and has continued to do so ever since. Why no 5 star rating well its because I cant afford some of the equipment and he provides no poor mans alternative.

3-0 out of 5 stars good but old
This book was written in the early eighties, and it shows. There is some valuable information, but it is aimed at the sheet metal shaping world- for instance, how to put compound curves into metal.

5-0 out of 5 stars SHH, Here Lies the Librarian
It's 1914 in Hendricks County, Indiana, and Jake and PeeWee McGrath run a garage for those newfangled automobiles. PeeWee, aka Eleanor, doesn't plan to go to high school. She will stay with her older brother and help run the garage, only her brother is a better mechanic. Then four sorority sisters from Butler University in Indianapolis arrive and plan to reopen the town library. Excitement abounds with a rival garage attempting to destroy the McGrath's business and an automobile race that makes NASCAR look like a Sunday drive. If you enjoyed Peck's The Teacher's Funeral, you will love this one. The relationship between Jake and Eleanor is strong and loving. This is a nostalgic and humorous look at the early 20th century.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay read
I looked for this book specifically for a library science assignment, and was excited about reading it.I really wanted to enjoy and like it!However, once I got into it, I found it disjointed with no visible plot.The setting, the early 1900's, is one I'm not sure children will understand.The language often seemed contrived and difficult, with a lot of dialect, and I often had to go back and re-read sections in order to understand what had happened.I wonder if the age group it is intended for will take the time to go back, or put it down for a more comfortable read.Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend this book to my students.Even though there were a few humorous moments, they were few and far between.As my students are fond of saying, "I just don't get it!"

4-0 out of 5 stars Wherein chauffeurs collect library fines
Do you ever get the impression that an author is trying just a little too hard to get the attention of their librarian readers?I don't think this happens much in the world of adult literature, but when it comes to kiddie lit, writers sometimes verge on the shameless.Now I was willing to look past Kimberly Willis Holt's paean to the glory of librarians everywhere in "Part of Me", and the non-fiction true tale of librarian heroism, "Dear Miss Breed" by Joanne Oppenheim could certainly slip by on my watch.But recently I've been doubling back and rereading some of the children's books that came out in early 2006.Of those books, one that I missed early on in the game was Richard Peck's, "Here Lies the Librarian", courtesy of Dial Books.Mr. Peck has written a wham-bam, rock `em, sock `em tale of hard core drag racing librarianship.Though still better (as anyone who reads his books regularly will tell you) than 92% of the schlock printed yearly, Peck's latest venture carries with it the faintest odor of familiarity.Basically, if you perused and enjoyed his previous book, "The Teacher's Funeral", then there's probably little reason to go on to this title as well unless you like to regularly douse yourself in Peck's pleasant wordplay.

5-0 out of 5 stars Porsche Excellence
The history of Porsche like no other. An absolute MUST HAVE for anyone who wants to everything about the Porsche cars. Wish the 964 chapter was more detailed (since I have one) but that is a minor issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best automobile history ever written
"The best automobile history ever written" -- that's a big claim and is easily misunderstood. But I think it would be exceedingly difficult to find a more thorough, better researched, more comprehensive, and better written automobile history, regardless of topic or marque. One may argue that there are more "important" cars (or not); perhaps the story of Daimler and Maybach's pioneering efforts, or Henry Ford's, are more "important" in a larger historical context than the activities of a relatively small maker of specialist sports and racing cars, but that's not what I claim here. I claim that this is the best WRITTEN, most thorough autombile history ever. Porsche, as an automobile and an enterprise, is a very special phenomenon, and Ludvigsen's book presents both company and car to an audience that may otherwise never appreciate it. If you don't like Porsches, then that doesn't matter. If you do, you need this book. If you're not sure, then this book may be the beginning of a lifelong passion for all things Porsche.
2-0 out of 5 stars Porsche Through Rose Glasses
If I'd realized Mr. Ludvigsen had a past history of writing for Automotive Quarterly, I would never have wasted this much money buying this set.Just like Automotive Quarterly (which never had a bad thing to say about any automobile) Mr. Ludvigsen glosses over the problems with the 356 and early 911 road cars, the internal power struggles within the company and board, and so on.Read more

This is a great introduction to vehicle dynamics and a basic guide to the overall tuning of the vehicle. Carroll Smith gives just the right amount of theory to go with his practical advice toward the end of the book so you can understand why it works (or doesn't).
5-0 out of 5 stars For Aspiring Race Engineers
The late Carroll Smith's book "Tune to Win" will appeal mostly to engineering minded car racing enthusiasts. Smith, in his patented blunt style, tells you everything you need to know about suspension geometry (both static and dynamic), handling issues related to alignment, springs, dampers, and anti-roll bars. While somewhat dated (1978), this book is still a gold mine of useful and accurate information. He goes on to discuss steering, under- and oversteer, and methods to set-up a race car based on what is actually happening with the car.

1-0 out of 5 stars if you want 30 portrets of Lee Parks - buy this book now
This was the first book on riding I have read. I was misled by reviews and rating of this book on amazon when I bought it, so I want to put my 2 cents in. I would recommend to read the following books first:
5-0 out of 5 stars Total Control, Baby!
If you're thinking of a part for your bike to put on your Christmas list, think about suspension. But, if you really want control of your bike get Total Control.
