Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

110 Car and Driving Emergencies offers quick, why-didn't-I-think-of-that answers to any problem a driver will possibly face, whether it's mechanical, electrical, weather, or an on-the-road hazard. Here is the first how-to book that shows how to calmly deal with minor problems or major hazards, in the driveway or garage or on the road far from home.

James Joseph, a longtime automobile and travel writer, has developed solutions to dealing with everything from a frozen lock to brake failure, from fixing a flat tire to extinguishing an engine fire.

Packaged to fit easily in a car's glove compartment for easy access, 110 Car and Driving Emergencies is the perfect gift for a new driver or an inveterate traveler. Here are simple and clearly illustrated solutions for such things as what to do when the gas pedal jams, if the power steering suddenly quits, or if an instrument light comes on. It also provides drivers answers to such emergencies as dealing with a sudden windstorm, a flash flood, a smashed window, an engine fire, a drunk driver, or a front-tire blowout.

For ease of information, these situations are divided into Nature or Weather Related Emergencies, Situational Emergencies such as getting help on the road or dodging an object thrown from an overpass, Mechanical Emergencies, and Worst-Case Emergencies such as a rollover or a carnapping.

Book News Annotation:

"Better safe than sorry" doesn't tell the half of it; auto writer Joseph describes how to deal with virtually every mechanical, electrical, situational, and nature-related driving emergency that can possibly be imagined, from snow to sniper attack. His guide, peppered with b&w illustrations, recommends the contents of a sensible emergency kit every car should carry and outlines step-by- step instructions for an enormous number of scenarios that it's hoped drivers will never have to confront.
