Drawing on an extensive storehouse of knowledge and using full-color photography, diagrams, and charts to support his text, Calvin Wan explains the theories behind every aspect of the sport. For those who want to do it, those who like to watch, and those who simply seek to understand, this is the quintessential guide to drifting.
