Skip Barber's "Going Faster" is a better textbook, especially for someone like me, an engineer with an analytical mindset.
If you want a driving textbook, get Barber's. If you want driving stories, get Bondurant's.
good old racing days, this might be the book for you. If you
want to learn to drive quickly, this book will disappoint you.
It is a well written biography about Bondurants life (a whole chapter in the book, and intersperced throughout the text), but lacks on much useful information on driving and racing techniques. After reading a lot of other books on this topic I feel that this one is fairly light on actual information and driving techniques in comparison. It is more up to date though than some books written on this topic. I would probably recommend Carl Lopez'/Skip Barber's book "Going Faster" Or Piero Taruffi's book "The technique of Motor Racing(Driving)" and similar titles over Bondurant's book. It does make a quick read and an introduction to the sport though.

An old book but still timely. The references to driver position, comfort, and control are great. Bondurant's driving experience makes everything authentic and fun to read.Published on June 5, 2013 by Ronald B. Moss
This was NOT a signed copy of the book..... The book was fine and interesting to read, but the item was not as advertised in the title of the sale.Published on February 18, 2013 by Robert B Smith
