Muses and Meditations

Dani Ben-Ari is determined to prove that a woman's place is "behind the wheel" in her book CAR OWNERSHIP FOR WOMEN. In it she strives to empower women of all ages by explaining the ins and outs of car buying from assessing one's needs to negotiating with dealers, auctions and the internet; and financing options; car safety by means of driving etiquette, handling hazardous road conditions and what to do during breakdowns, etc. In addition, Ben-Ari explains the car maintenance inside, outside and the engine. Now, in her new book GIRLS GO RACING: DRIVING TO ESTEEMS, co-written with Susan Frissell Ph.D, Ben-Ari helps women understand the sport of racing, what it entails for young girls who express an interest in getting involved, and how racing is a viable career option for young women. In addition, Ben-Ari and Frissell show how involvement in the sport of auto racing builds much needed self-esteem.

The purpose of this book is to help women understand the sport of auto racing, what it entails for young girls who express an interest in getting involved, how racing is a viable career option for young women and finally, how involvement in the sport of auto racing builds much needed self esteem.

In Chapter 1 Why Are Girls Racing we explore the psychology of self-esteem building and how involvement in motor sports plays a factor, defining one's identity and the concept of competitiveness.

In Chapter 2 Who Are Girls Racing we explore the historical perspective of the sport of auto racing, present some past experiences of young women involved in motorsports and introduce readers to some of the famous female pioneers in the field. We also profile several of the up-and-coming female drivers who have made the field of motor sports a career. The potential for young women in auto racing is also discussed.

In Chapter 3 How Are Girls Racing we take a look at how one learns competitiveness, as well as at training facilities and scholarships and grants available.

In Chapter 4 Where Are Girls Racing we explain all the various racing events from competitions for young kids, stepping stone events to further racing opportunities, and all the venues in racing, from go-karts to Formula 1 racecars as well as at the "sport" of professional racing.

In addition, Girls Go Racing includes a helpful Glossary of motor sport terms.

Although written with women in mind, both books provide interesting information useful to men as well. For more information or to order your copies check out Dani's website at www.musesandmeditations.com
