Book Title: Jackie Stewart's Principles of Performance Driving
Author: Jackie Stewart
From Library Journal Stewart's ability behind the wheel of a Formula I racing machine is legendary, so anything he has to say about competition driving is bound to be interesting. Add to that his sense of humor and a reputation for independent thinking and you have essential reading for auto-racing buffs. Neither a "how to drive a race car" manual, nor a recounting of "my greatest races" Stewart's book is about what it takes to succeed as a race driver, about his philosophy, about preparation and discipline as the basis for success. Stewart talks about techniques, control, and common sense; about the politics of motor sport, the cars and their builders, safety, and pressures on and off the track. Anyone with an interest in motor sports should read this. Illustrations not seen. Susan Ebershoff-Coles, Indianapolis-Marion Cty. P.L.
