Recommended for: Scooterists; Visitors of Italy

I met Peter Moore, then bought his book at a scooter event. That little Aussie has some really big stories. His more serious work tells of his time in Iran, but Vroom describes a fun romp around Italy via Vespa Vecchia. I thought it was pretty cool, but I'm biased: I'm a scooter nerd and also was planning a trip to Italy, so his insights on culture and off-the-beaten-path locales were quite useful.

I also got through it in about 2.5 hours. It's a really fast read (paced somewhat like a downhill cruise on a 40-year-old scooter) but Moore packs an awful lot into the brief read.
