Meet the Author


Zack Arnstein, after failing his first three driving tests, finally passed it at the age of 16 on his fourth try, making him one of the world's most distinguished experts on driving tests. He then went on to become an authority in the related fields of law enforcement and minor traffic accidents by collecting a variety of moving violations and “fender-benders.”

Larry Arnstein, after failing his first driving test, passed it at the age of 18 on his second try. He has also collected his share of moving violations and fender-benders during a driving career which included driving taxicabs in New York City and Berkeley, California. Currently he is a model of safe driving techniques, but occasionally is subject to episodes of taxi driver flashback syndrome during which his driving is unpredictable. Larry has written for the television shows Saturday Night Live and Not Necessarily the News, for which he won two Writers Guild of America Awards. They are the coauthors of The Dog Ate My Resume and they live in Santa Monica, California.
