From the cover: “The Publishers have not received any written abuse about The Motorist’s Weekend Book and The Motorist’s Bedside Book — which perhaps goes to show that automotive squares, albeit with a wheel at each corner, are as illiterate as they are equilateral. Nevertheless, this has encouraged them a great deal — at any rate to the extent that they have egged on the same pear-shaped Editor to relinquish the semi-slouching position especially designed for him by Colin Chapman, to sit up properly, and to prevail upon some of the finest motoring writers in the world to contribute to another light-hearted motoring symposium, potpourri, melange or W. H. Y. Those who were unable to resist his blandishments (or who just needed the money) are listed on the back flap of this jacket.

The leading motoring photographers triumph again in a collection of brilliant illustrations, and there are cartoons by Russell Brockbank, Bill Thacker and Fred Wilkin. Every true motoring enthusiast will enjoy this book; while those other shaken drivers, cowering in their armchairs, twitching gently and congratulating themselves on survival, will undoubtedly find something inside it which will persuade them to take heart, extend their necks, and to fight again another day..”
