Pressestimmen

Parker grew up a mechanic's son and is as comfortable discussing gear sets and weight transfer as he is explaining the formula for determining the force of drag on a vehicle at any given speed. You don't need to be an engineer to read and enjoy Parker's often entertaining book that covers everything from the basics of engines and electronics to crashes and congestion. And after learning about Wd=Fh/R, you will likely be a better driver. RATING: Three and 1/2 [out of four] helmets. -- Larry Edsall Autoweek 2004 Parker's entertaining book is not a heavy tome replete with complex mathematical formulas-nothing more complex than high school physics. What The Isaac Newton School of Driving answers is the annoying complaint every teacher or parent hears from a teenager: 'I'll never use all this (insert expletive) in real life!'. -- Terry Jackson AMI Auto World Magazine Contains examples of practical technology that would certainly enhance and extend many courses... written in a lighthearted manner that is successful and appealing. -- Hal Harris 21 C: Scanning the Future A comprehensive look at the fundamental elements of the driving experience... The author enlivens many difficult concepts with clear, comfortable explanations... Whether a reader is looking for simple applications or the physics of high performance racing vehicles, this book will make any reader pause and think about the science of their car and driving. -- Charles James National Science Teachers Association Recommends Barry Parker has written an intriguing book... The Isaac Newton School of Driving has a definite flair and keeps the reader interested. -- Henry J. P. Smith Industrial Physicist 2004 The discussions are clear and the physics is correct.
