Four all-time favorite episodes from the popular radio show-complete, unexpurgated, and hilarious. Click and Clack may be America's most trusted car repair experts. They are certainly the funniest, as millions of listeners who tune in each week to Car Talk can attest. As each show unfolds, it develops its own zany feeling and rhythm, sometimes due to the strength of the coffee or a particularly large burr in Tommy's undershorts. This Car Talk set is for fans who want to waste another four perfectly good hours. Rather than a "best of" collection, it's four complete shows-every call, every joke, every "Don't drive like my brother" admonition, every puzzler, every punny mention of a fictional show staff member (chauffeur Picov Andropov, night club manager Don Kashane), and every maniacal laugh. The four shows include the 2002 Mother's Day extravaganza with Click and Clack's long-suffering mom, and "You Can't Do It Unless the Number Is Two" from February 2001, the show that gave birth to a new Car Talk mantra and exposed Tommy's radical views on education (like, it should end after seventh grade).

Professional reviews

"This isn't really an audiobook--it's four episodes of the long-running NPR show "Car Talk," selected by the hosts. Fans may argue with the Magliozzi brothers' choices, but these shows stand on their own as excellent talk radio and, for non-listeners to the show, can also serve as an introduction. Even a car buff will learn a thing or two. My favorite episode features Martha Stewart offering tips on such topics as car interior hygiene; she has a dry sense of humor and a quick wit perfect for the show. The bottom line: you could just tune into your local NPR station to hear this week's show, but this collection is what the Magliozzi brothers consider putting their best foot forward. T.F.
