Countless millions of Americans find relief from their over-connected, stressed out lives in the simple pleasures of yoga and meditation.
Then there are car lovers.
The book, titled “Never Stop Driving: A Better Life Behind the Wheel,” features essays and musings on the driving life by the nation’s leading automotive journalists and an array of celebrity car fans, including Jay Leno, host of “Jay Leno’sGarage,” racing legend Mario Andretti, actor Patrick Dempsey and others.
Why this book now?
“The book is essentially a love letter to the art and act of driving,” says Larry Webster, the editor and lead author of the book. “With driverless cars on the horizon, it’s worth celebrating the fact that for many people there are enormous benefits to simply taking a drive in the country or getting dirty under the hood.”
Packed with glorious photos and provocative writing, “Never Stop Driving: A Better Life Behind the Wheel,” retails for $26.99 and is now available through The Shop by Hagerty and through retailers nationwide. All proceeds from books purchased through The Shop by Hagerty will fund driver’s education scholarships for young drivers through Hagerty’s “License to the Future” initiative.
The book is a part of Hagerty’s ongoing mission to Save Driving in the coming age of autonomy and make sure that people who choose to continue to drive themselves always have a share of the road.
“People who love cars aren’t against driverless cars, far from it. They’re going to do a lot of good for society,” says Webster. “But we do want to protect something that also means a lot, and that’s driving yourself when you want to. I hope we never lose that. That’s what the Save Driving campaign is all about.”
