One only needs to look at the number of performance cars available today to see that the desire to truly drive is still in strong demand.

From how best to use your car's controls, to cornering, to dealing with adverse driving conditions, this book will make you a better performance driver. Along the way, you'll learn what ABS, traction and stability control, self-braking systems, and semiautomatic transmissions do and how best to incorporate them into your driving.The Lost Art of Performance Driving will help you understand your car well and be an even better, faster driver. Most importantly, it will fuel your passion for driving!
