What are you reading?

I picked up Ultimate Speed Secrets today and so far it is a pretty good read. The quality of the book itself is great, with an oversized cover to protect the pages, which are thick, color and with nice diagrams. Should hold up well on track trips.

Insomnia by Stephen King

Keith Codes 'a twist of the wrist' are great motorcycle books for track days. They can help car drivers as well, because they teach about track layouts etc

No worries, amazing book, and surprisingly not boring at all, its written as if he's sitting there telling it to you in person, not some fact by fact read.

I just picked mine up from the library

Re: What are you reading?

Picked up Drifting: the Art of Oversteer. Not the quality of Ultimate Speed Secrets, but definitely worth reading if you're interested in greater car control beyond racing. Try to find it in an auction for less than its $25 list price, though. USS is an excellent racing resource book BTW.

Re: What are you reading?

On a normal note, I am currently reading Children of the Mind It's the 4th book of the series beginning with Ender's Game. I've been attached to this series since I picked it up.

I also read alot.. mostly dystopian fiction lately though.
