This collection includes some of the best calls to "Car Talk," NPR's Peabody Award-winning show. Both new and old listeners will enjoy listening to Tom and Ray, the Magliozzi brothers, talk about cars, and, as the title suggests, families. The advice is both mechanically solid and emotionally touching. The Magliozzis share powerful voices and deliveries polished by years on the radio. Brief voice-overs link the individual calls, but they aren't really necessary, as the brothers' personalities unify the collection by themselves. As the two men chide and jolly their callers to get the real stories about their cars, and the people behind them, the result is warm and funny. G.T.B.
