It has a pretty little chapter on physical training of a driver, with the schemes gymnastic exercises recommended for a motorist.
The details of driving position and handling of a steering wheel are mentioned, but not covered well enough.
Nevertheless, the cornering is explained fairly well, in 69 pages full of formulas, schemes and illustrations.
If you need a deeper text-book about fast and safe cornering, which is not only applicable to sport but also to driving on public road, and which covers slippery surfaces like ice, snow and dirt, I would have recommended a published work by Professor Tsygankov.
Today's street cars are about as fast as the racecars of the 1960s era, so this book is like a high performance driving manual for the car you probably own today.
