AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Driven is a memoir by distinguished Australian former diplomat Richard Broinowski, with a particular focus on the cars he has loved and driven in Australia and his various postings in Asia, the Middle East, and North and Central America. This makes for an entertaining way of looking at various cultures (their driving behaviour, traffic conditions and road rules) and his career as an Australian ambassador. Part offbeat travel book, part career memoir, it is an engaging and personal look at one man's life and enduring loves.' (From the publisher's website.)
