If you're a real car enthusiast, you will buy and read this book because of three words: E63 AMG Wagon.
If you think you're a real car enthusiast because you read Car & Driver, or Road & Track, or some other auto-themed Noun Ampersand Noun magazine, you'll want to pick up and read this book because it includes the following subjects: BMW, M-series, Lotus, Porsche, Mercedes, Land Rover.
If you're not a car enthusiast, but agree that best people on the road drive like idiots, then you'll enjoy this book because it is hilariously funny and because the author quit his job at Porsche to write full time, and who does that?
If you ignore all other drivers on the road, listen to opera in the car, and completely lack a sense of humor, then you should skip this and reread Anna Karenina, because that's more your speed, anyway.
The book delivers more of what car folks like- hilarious stories about the best and the worst of cars. I really do mean the best and the worst- for a young writer, he's owned a ton of really interesting cars and tells the stories of the car world better than most.
I would give this book a DougScore of 100: it's entertaining and educational.
In all, a unique and hilarious perspective from a man who plays with cars, this book totally lived up to my expectations.
Dougs writing is presented with a highly entertaining, self deprecating style that's easy to read and encourages frequent smiles and sniggers.
People of a certain minimum age and British heritage may recall a youthful Jeremy Clarkson on the original 1970's BBC Top Gear before he got arrogant and grumpy (but no less funny). In many respects, Doug channels and improves on what made the young Clarkson so entertaining - possibly because he is able to dispense with the BBC of the 1970's annoying insistence on over the top truthiness and accuracy. Having not seen a photo of Doug DeMuro, I'm not able to comment on whether he may also sport a 1970's Jeremy Clarkson afro-style hairdo.
My only criticism is that it ended abruptly and there was no information about the author and how you can connect with him or where you can read his columns at the back of the book.

Much of Doug's humor is sexist, racist, or otherwise unkind.Read more
