Jump in and buckle-up, P.J. O'Rourke delivers his rapid-fire wit from the driver's seat of Buicks, Land Rovers, Harley-davidsons and at least one Soviet army surplus truck. Driving Like Crazy is a hilarious collection of fender-bending pieces that career along at O'Rourke's full-throttle, breakneck Gonzo best ...

A rollicking ride through three decades of O'Rourke's car journalism, combining classic articles and new material with his trademark merciless skewering of liberal niceties and political correctness at every turn.' Philip Sherwell, Sunday Telegraph 'P. J. O'Rourke's homage to the highway is an exhilarating and hilarious ride... Nobody can argue with the fantastic forward rush of O'Rourke's prose... it's why you're glad you went along for the ride.' Giles Smith, The Times 'O'Rourke is America's funniest writer, having stolen the flag of Gonzo from Hunter S. Thompson... The pieces make great travel writing - stripped-down, yet evocative. O'Rourke fans will find plenty to enjoy in Driving Like Crazy.' Stephen Price, Sunday Business Post 'Whatever the topic, P J O'Rourke is equal parts hilarity and extremity. Here's proof that this extends to cars.' Daily Telegraph
