About the Author

Kristen Hall-Geisler is a freelance automotive journalist living in Portland, Oregon. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, US News & World Report, Wired, Popular Science, and HowStuffWorks.com. She is the author of Take the Wheel: A Woman's Guide to Buying a Car Her Own Damn Self.


Spoken with a voice of someone who's been there, automotive journalist Hall-Geisler deftly explains [in Take the Wheel] the best strategies for finding the car you want, making sure it's the car you need, and buying it at a fair price with a minimum of drama.
Although it's aimed at women, there's so much information included for all buyers that men should buy a copy of Motor Trend, hide this book between the pages, and give it a thorough read. - John M. Vincent, OregonLive.com, July 26, 2013

At 140 pages, [Take the Wheel] is a quick read filled with useful tips, funny personal stories and acute observations about human behavior. - Jim Redden, Portland Tribune, November 14, 2013

This book kicks ***. The content is a delight to read because it's as sassy and savvy as the subtitle. Heck, I learned more than a few things about car buying strategies that go far beyond the kick-the-tire approach I usually use. Everything from budgeting, analyzing your needs, the all-important test drive, and the way to handle the art of the deal. - verified Amazon purchase, August 20, 2015
