Setright, L. J. K.

SUMMARY

Stimulating, informative, provocative, and witty, "Drive On!" charts the international history of the car, decade by decade, examining how cars have adapted as a result of what society has demanded of them.

Along the way, L.J.K. Setright, who is considered one of the world's foremost and most forthright writers on the subject, offers fascinating divagations on everything from the origins of the word "dashboard" to the maximum speed of a raindrop.Setright, L.
