    Review:

    ...demystifies the techniques of race driving. -- Playboy

    The best and most comprehensive book about driving racing cars, including cornering, car control, racing in the rain, and tuning the chassis. Mandatory reading for anyone who wants to drive fast on the street or on the track. -- Automobile

    There really is nothing about racing this book does not cover. -- Sports Car International

    Going Faster! is the most complete, most compelling, best-illustrated look at the technique and science of race driving seen to date...Even if you're a veteran of many driving schools, you'll have trouble putting this book down. -- Road & Track

    Going Faster!...may be the best book on race-driving technique to date...Going Faster! is not a substitute for the Barber three-day racing class, but...it's the next best thing to being there. -- Car and Driver

    If race driving were taught as a multi-semester course at a prestigious university, the textbook would look a lot like Going Faster!...Every race driver would be well served to reread Going Faster! at least once a season... -- Motor Trend

    The book is incredibly in-depth, going a few steps further than those that simply say 'a late apex is always better'.-- Grassroots Motorsports

    Three types of readers will find Lopez' work particularly useful: the would-be racer who wants a real taste of what the track is like, the driver who wants to improve, and the racing fan who wants better to understand what he sees going on at the track. All will be rewarded by a thorough read of this excellent book. -- Excellence

    For a beginner not to avail themselves of this book is unpardonable. More experienced drivers will also be making a mistake to avoid it. You may not agree with everything it says about racing, but it will make you think about your driving in competition. -- SportsCar Magazine

    No racer, or driver school participant should be without this book.

    --Roundel Magazine
