William Heath Robinson (31 May 1872 - 13 September 1944) was an English cartoonist and illustrator best known for drawings of ridiculously complicated machines for achieving simple objectives.
"This charming book presents such innovations as the 'Zip-Opening Bonnet, ' the 'Duo-car for the incompatible, ' and the handy 'New Rear Wheel Gear for Turning the Car in One Movement.' Our favorite is his suggestion of a large question mark, that car drivers can use to 'indicte doubt as to the next move' which remains as appropriate as ever."--Octane "Amusing. . . . The text by K. R. G. Browne is quite amusing but it is for the humorous illustrations, all on a motoring theme that one recommends this book."--Aston Martin Owners Club "The blend of Robinson's witty illustrations and caustic commentary from the pen of K. R. G. Browne is beguiling. How to be a Motorist was penned for the novice motorist, and whilst some aspects of the book--like the emphasis on male drivers--are outdated, most of its contents remains humorously pertinent today."--Good Book Guide
