Summary

Former Top Gear Stig Ben Collins shares expert skills and wisdom refined over a 20-year career as one of the best drivers in the world - from Le Mans Series racing to NASCAR, piloting the Batmobile and dodging bullets with James Bond.
Ben's philosophy of anticipation, smoothness and speed, honed over thousands of hours of elite-level performance, is really about economy of motion - which also gives you greater control, safety and fuel efficiency. How to Drive is about driving better, not faster.
Whether you've been behind the wheel for the best part of 30 years or you bought your first L-plate 10 seconds ago, this is the stuff your instructor missed, your dad forgot and your mates pretend to know...but don't.

Entertaining but impractical

Even though I love the stories Ben Collins shares, his advanced driving tips elude me simply because 1. I do not have the car to do them with, and 2. if I had one, verbal instructions on how to parallel park a car while sliding it in just to not work for me.
For me I'd have loved more stories and less instructions.

A good book but not what I expected

I didn’t realise this was a book that actually tells you how to drive! Although there are some interesting bits and a few good anecdotes. Some bits are a little patronising and it sounds like it was recorded on a potato. That said I still kind-of enjoyed it.

How to master driving, taught by a master

Ben Collins approaches driving cars for every day users from a passionate yet scientific perspective. He covers all the basics, from braking, cornering and accelerating, to the most advanced stunt techniques. Through all the book a sense of control and sensibility is transmitted for regular drivers; and at the same time stories are colorful and fun to listen. Ben's british accent and clear voice is also a plus.
