A Tongue and Cheek Guide to Winning the "Heart" of NASCAR Guys May 27, 2008
The Girl's Guide to Winning a NASCAR Driver ("Winning") was a humorous, easy read through. I personally think Allison's The Girl's Guide to NASCAR ("GG2N"), is way better. I actually bought "Winning" after reading "GG2N" . I am fairly new to NASCAR (just got into it within the last year). I was hoping to find out some more information about NASCAR in this book.
"GG2N" was very easy to read and broke down the sport to make it more understandable to use newbies. Plus had funny "tongue and cheek" side notes that made the reading entertaining (i.e. cutest rear end in NASCAR, who would be the perfect date).
I was hoping more of it would be in "Winning". However, if focused upon what was appropriate attire at NASCAR races (like common sense doesn't tell you that). It does give a very brief description of NASCAR's history, but nothing like in "GG2N".
If you are someone who is interested in finding out about how the wives and guys of NASCAR met, then "Winning" is for you! It also gives you hints for where to get driver autographs (again for those individuals who like that sort of thing), and how to get pit passes. "Winning" does have some interesting recipes that I might eventually try out for NASCAR theme parties. Also if you take it as the satire it is, it does have some general words of wisdom when dealing with guys in general (not necessarily NASCAR/sports ones).
However, if you want a fun guide to read that breaks down stuff in NASCAR for us ladies, definitely get Allison's The Girl's Guide to NASCAR book! "GG2N" gives a nice breakdown of NASCAR's history, gives information about the cars on the track, and gives an awesome breakdown (including maps) of the different race tracks.
So "track" it down - buy "GG2N" or "Winning" depending on your "driving" goals! You'll be sure to get the "checkered flag"!
