It has earned its place in driving circles throughout Europe as a standard guide and reference book.

So you want to drive stick... You've heard that driving stick gives you more control of your car in every situation, from a passing maneuver to descending a snowy hill. You've heard driving a stick shift car is more economical at the gas pump. You've heard it's more fun. But you've also heard it's hard to learn. There are gearshifts to master, your engine can stall, and understanding the clutch is a nightmare: "Lift the clutch pedal and the clutch is engaged." Engaged? I've never even seen a clutch with a girlfriend! So, what if I told you using a clutch is no more difficult than using a faucet, or that I can teach you - in one sentence - how to avoid ever stalling your engine? I've already taught thousands of people to drive stick - men and women of all ages - normal people, not engineering students or race car engineers. And I can teach you.
