"Driving Like Crazy" will leave you bruised and battered, but with an ear to ear smile.

So, I'm half way through P.J.O'Rourke's Driving Like Crazy and it left me mentally bruised and battered, but with a big ol' sh*t eating grin. Normally I don't bother with the Acknowledgement section of a book, just go right at Chapter 1, but from page one P. J. O'Rourke starts a roller coaster adventure of his life in the 70's & 80's. From his chapter on how to do all the wrong things in a car to his real life adventures ( several times ) in Baja. Reading how O'Rourke "discovered" single handedly of course NASCAR in the early 80's was a treat.
Note to self, don't go to Baja with his friends, or maybe at all. Having read about his various treks through the peninsula I'm not sure I'm man enough.
I'll let you know how the rest of the book goes, but even just from this half, I'd say buy it.
