Think Fast by Neil Roberts
Subtitled: The Racer's Why-To Guide to Winning
There are a lot of how-to racing books, but Think Fast is the first why-to racing book. Instead of simply telling you what to do (and assuming that you, your equipment, and your budget are the same as his), Neil Roberts explains why certain techniques and practices work -- or don't work.
Despite his engineering credentials (IndyCar engineer, racecar designer for Swift Engineering, and shoestring-budget Formula Ford driver), this book is not just a collection of equations and dry technical information. Neil has drawn from his personal experiences in the pit lane, in the car, and at the drawing board to create a book for beginners and old pros alike. His unique sense of humor makes this one of the most enjoyable instruction books you will ever read. Softbound, 183 pages with many illustrations, photos, and charts.
