    Elford on Cornering--Nice Christmas Gift

    http://www.amazon.com/Porsche-High-Performance-Driving-Handbook-Elford/dp/0879388498

    If you don't already know about or have this book, and like me are not an advanced level driver, this would probably make a nice self-gift for Christmas. Clear basic-level discussions on car & driving dynamics and various techniques (heel toe, trail braking, slow in fast out--although he didn't use such term, etc.). Even some Porsche racing history/stories. Not meant to replace PDE of course, but by far the most cost effective money I've spent for car "accessories."

    There is a diagram of him showing "the quick way around a corner" that has never failed to make friends smile when I show it to them. One look and people will immediately know where you are coming from.
