"In Our Humble Opinion: Car Talk's Click and Clack Rant and Rave," by Tom and Ray Magliozzi ( Perigee, 268 pages, $19.95)

National Public Radio's most listened-to -- and most delicious -- program is an indescribable amalgam of iconoclasm and practicality, of superbly competent advice on living with an automobile and outrageous counsel on joyfulness. This delightful collaboration in provocation has little to do with automobiles. The MIT-educated siblings who turned from bright futures in the ranks of university faculty and cyber-business to open a garage in Their Fair City, Cambridge, Mass., have opinions on almost everything. Some make lots of sense. All are worth thinking about. If you are a fan of the program, you'll love every page of this. If you aren't -- well, you should be.
