4-0 out of 5 stars Bicycle repair and maintenance
Excellent book with great information. Could be illistrated a little better.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best
Best aspect of the book is it doesn't try to cover road bikes and mountain bikes.

5-0 out of 5 stars
Business tools like six sigma and TOC are the "ante" required to "get in the game". Many possess profound knowledge of the tools, but that is insufficient.Matt May helps leaders understand that real, enduring success derives from a lean culture fanatically committed over the long run to continual small improvements, to the care of its customers, and to the welfare of the society of which it is a part. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Intro to Vehicle Dynamics
Most dynamics books are kinda hard to read or dont give adequate examples/problems.I found this book to be useful and easy to read.It covers nearly every topic of the automobile from tires to ride and handling, braking conditions and aerodynamics.All pretty concise but worthwhile.The $100 or so will definitely be worth it.Makes a great reference book for any basic auto dynamics needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics
Thomas Gillespie is able to explain the fundamental principles of vehicle dynamics in his book.For those new to the subject of vehicle dynamics, this work will lay the foundation for more advanced reading.Those with science, math and engineering degrees, or those familiar with technical literature, will find the reading easy to understand in comparison to some other works.This allows the reader to focus their attention on understanding the "big picture," and not getting lost in particular formulae.However, for those doing research in the field or pursuing this as a career, there are more advanced texts available.

I am 50 years old and until my accident I have never had a wreck.I bought this book on Amazon.com about a year ago and followed it religiously to settle my claim.It worked.Thought I'd share this with others.

I just finished reading this book which my mother got me for Christmas.I had an accident a few weeks ago and was beside myself with worry over it.I didn't get hurt badly but my neck and back hurt a lot the next morning.My car wasn't so fortunate, though.

4-0 out of 5 stars EV reference...has all the ins and outs
This book is a great reference for anyone interested in the trade offs when creating an electric vehicle.
4-0 out of 5 stars Electric cars rule!
This is a very informative book that can tell you pretty much everything you need to know when it comes to electric vehicles.If you want a good fiction read about electric vehicles, try 'The Wilson Concern', by Will Alan.I found it very entertaining and informative.

4-0 out of 5 stars My first referance in my Q8 - EV
This book is very useful for EV projects and contains a lot of theoretical and practical information. My EV was the first one in my country (Kuwait) because of this book and (Convert it). It is really dependable assuming that you have mechanical skills. Good Luck!!!! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless
Do not buy this book.It has absolutely no detail and states only what you can already figure out using common sense.I wanted help replacing the carburetor on my 1989 Honda Accord.The book says to remove hoses, connections and loosen the mounting nuts and lift out the carburetor and then install the new carburetor the same way the old one was installed---that's it.No help with hose diagrams or information about how to disconnect or reconnect anything.Also, the carburetor won't just lift out---it is necessary to loosen the manifold to get the thing out.The book doesn't even mention that.As I said, the book is useless.I wouldn't have given it even one star, but I had no choice.

1-0 out of 5 stars awful
confusing, no detail.... You cannot wirte a 276 pg book for 10 years worth of 2 different cars...There are no pictures and often little detail on what you are supposed to be looking at...Maybe a good, i mena good mechanic could use this book, but no one else...

4-0 out of 5 stars Has its moments and applications
I own both the Chilton's manual and the service manual and I use them almost an equal amount when working on my '92 Accord.Yes, the Chilton's doesn't contain as much model-specific information as the service manual, but at times the service manual is too technical and difficult to follow.That's when I turn to the Chilton's manual.IMHO it's well worth the price. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Automobile engineering vol 5
your listing of this book is wrong
4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book
This was a good book but out of date on many topics. It is a great all around reference or start-up and go book. I decided I wanted to learn about cars so I found this book at a tag sale and now I know the basics. I wouldsuggest this book for its no-nonsense and in-depth approach.

4-0 out of 5 stars A must for motoring enthusiasts.
I'm an automotive engineering student and I use this book as a reference. It provides information on virtually everything on or related to a car, tools, brakes, suspensions, fuel systems, just to name a few. Besides that,it also provides service and diagnosis information on every system of thecar it covers. The language used is simple to understand, and yet blendswell with layman's terms. There's also a dictionary on automotive terms inthe book. Recommended to motoring enthusiasts and automotive students. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Success through suppliers
The pursuit of knowledge that gives us an understanding of factors that determine success in the market place has always considered "the firm" as the unit of analysis. This has been the case with microeconomics, game theory, competitive strategy and many such specialized areas of research. Cartels that manipulate supply and prices are perhaps an exception to this rule. If, instead of considering the firm as the unit, we consider a group of firms teaming together to collectively provide value to the customer and succeed as a unique identity as a unit of analysis, the methodology to understand competition would undergo a paradigm shift. This book is precisely about this concept as applicable to the automobile industry.5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece
Having followed Dyer's other research, I think that this is a theoretically elegant piece of work. He builds further on his pieces in SMJ (with Singh from Wharton) and AMR and illustrates the concepts of relationship-based assets in firm networks. The running exemplar has he uses (Toyota) illustrates his theoretical arguments quite elonquently. The book also highlights the limitations of his concept of collaborative advantage, and his closing chapter illustrates how cultural differences (here with Benz) can keep this strategy from becoming reality. This book is not for folks looking for cut-out recipies. This book is a MUST for researchers and managers who like to think instead of searching for cookbooks! The concluding chapter is a gem because it highlights our gaps in knowledge. This is an excellent book, and having read Dyer's other works, it's high quality comes as very little surprise. Buy, own, read, reread, and profusely highlight your own copy! VERY highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recomended!
Jeffrey Dyer, an accomplished scholar and management teacher, has developed a cogent and sophisticated theory of extended enterprise management based on a wealth of empirical data from the history of Toyota in Japan and from his six-year study of Chrysler Corp. before its merger with Daimler-Benz. Beyond being a detailed and rigorous case study of the automobile manufacturing industry, Dyer's book presents an extremely valuable model for vertical integration. His model can be applied to other complex product industries, though he is honest about the limits of its applicability. This book provides a clear, effective blueprint for achieving value-chain collaboration. We [...] recommend it to consultants, executives in complex product industries and leaders in firms that supply components or materials. If you always suspected you were part of a greater whole, now you can be sure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top Flight Calder
The book gives you the tech you need, in terms you can understand.Calder is very impressive in his ability to impart knowledge to the layman.Don't however, assume this is just fluff overview, because it truly is the down and dirty of how it works and how to maintain it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Cruiser's Engine Atlas
This book provides the reader with a broad overview of most of the basic problems that can occur and offers simple solutions.I have recommended/loaned my copy of this book to several Diesel sailboat owners.The all remarked on how simple their repair was according to the book and how it save them $$.
5-0 out of 5 stars Know Your Diesel
My copies of this book has grease stained fingerprints throughout. A lot of folks have told me they think this book is redundant, because much of the info is covered in Mr. Calder's Mechanical & Electrical Manual but this smaller book is easier to work with when working around your engine and the material is presented differently enough that the book is one I believe you should have if you live on a boat. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Worked for me - barely
Bought this manual so that I could do an engine swap in my 97 318ti.Nothing fancy, old engine failed at 192K and I had a salvage one to take it's place, no upgrade here.These cars can be somewhat complicated with a wiring harness that's a complete maze plus a lot of mechanicals shoved in a small area - there is definitely a specific sequence for assembly.The manual was very helpful for some disassembly and reassembly but was very vague in other areas and for specifics to my exact model.Could I have done my work without this manual?Probably, but it would have been more difficult.On the other hand, if I had to rely solely on this manual and not taken lots of pictures and had online assistance from a 318ti group I probably would have been in trouble.I'd probably buy again, but plan on a second or third source for help in any major work.Worth noting that manual does have a lot of info for areas such as sunroof or ragtop, plus many other areas that might present common problems to an owner.Also worth noting that the manual covers nothing on the lower end of any model - if you need to work on pistons or the crank, don't purchase this manual.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bently's service manual
Bently's service manuals are one of the best sources of information you can get for your BMW or Porsche. Highly recommend any of their books.

1-0 out of 5 stars Book review...a lesson in futility
The author of this book apparantly does not know the value of proof reading. So many mistakes and items that either are misdirected, or do not exist in the text altogether. Never a more frustrating experience than reading and trying to decipher this poorly written book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Errors and incomplete examples, expect some frustration
I received this book on Friday and have spent some time with it over the weekend. In that short time I've found errors in formulas and examples that fell short. For example, there was a section that talked about how voltage drop is affected by the length of a conductor and even gave a formula to calculate it, but in the example following the definition, it used another formula that didn't factor in conductor length, without explaining why the length-dependent formula was not used. Another example: A calculation question on one of the review questions had an answer that didn't match the formula used to obtain it. After hunting around, I found the correct formula, which did result in the answer listed. Ultimately, I think this book will prove useful, but I would say to anyone considering using this book that they shouldn't be surprised if they find calculations that don't make sense and wind up consulting other books to make sure they completely understand how things are calculated.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide for the casual off-roader
I've been using this book for close to a couple years now.While I don't consider myself a novice to off-roading, I definitely don't fall into the rock-crawling group, preferring to use my 4x4 to simply get me to new and out-of-the-way places when time permits.Thus far it has proven to be an excellent resource for quick weekend off-roading getaways and for reading up on new trails to explore.In fact, I've enjoyed this book so much I wound up buying two others as gifts for family and friends.The photos and overviews of each trail definitely help give a good feel for what to expect.If you're a techno-geek like me, being able to plot a computer-generated map using the detailed GPS coordinates will prove highly invaluable (though I have discovered a few critical--though easily identifiable and correctable--errors in the coordinates), and with a handheld GPS I don't need to worry about the often-unusual orientation of the printed maps.For those of us who love exploring, this book will make a fantastic resource.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
The best book for beginners.Gives ratings and some pictures for all the trails, so you know what to expect.Probably not a whole lot for more advanced off-roaders, but then they probably won't be reading this book anyway.I recommend this book for anybody with an SUV who wants to use it off-highway.The only downside of this book is the detail maps of the trails.For some reason, they couldn't agree on which way to point North(usually north is up in all other maps) so sometimes you have to turn the book sideways to the right or left to get your bearings.Also, not much detail on the maps themselves, so sometimes you really dont' know where you are in relation to the surrounding area.But they give plenty of detail in the driving directions, so you almost don't need the map.Best book I've ever bought, anyone who likes to adventure outdoors should buy this.You don't even need an SUV on the easier trails.

5-0 out of 5 stars The quintessential So Cal book for dirt road exploring.
First thing that hits you is the heft of this book.It is large and heavy, but that just tantalizes you of what lies beyond the cover.It is full of so much information about southern California's backcountry you could spend hours and hours reading.But this book is to be used as a guide for exploring.And guide you it does. The maps, descriptions and details are excellent for each trail.The history section is great and my family and I even used this book to identify plants from its full color photos on our last outing. For anyone wanting to explore dirt trails in So Cal, from mild ones not really needing 4 wheel drive to more difficult ones, this book is for you. Rock crawlers need not apply, but for the other 99% of us with 4x SUV's this book is perfect! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I Built One!
Great book, made the process straightforward and understandable. If you simply follow the steps in the book you will end up with a really good little sports car. If you also incorporate some information from Caroll Smith and Allen Staninforth's books you will have a car that will beat the pants off a Caterham.
5-0 out of 5 stars This is the beginning
I know how to weld, cut metal design and tune suspensions from scratch adapt junk to something useful the list of things I can do seems endless sometimes. Before I got this book I could do none of these things THIS is the book that gave me the bug which bit me and inspired me to learn to do all these things and to search for knowledge online in books etc. It all began with this book. This book has forced me to take back all my sarcastic cynical remarks about actually building your own car when my wife bought this book for me. It is not a perfect book If it was I wouldnt have learned half of what I do now about suspensions etc since ford cortinas are not sold here But that is part of this books charm its hook is in getting you off your back side and into the pursuit of your own personal sports car. Its been a fantastic ride and I hope you buy a copy too

5-0 out of 5 stars We all can be car builders!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The title does not exaggerate...
There are two types of 993 owners...the driving enthusiast and the poseur.For the latter group, this book would be a waste of time. For the former, however, this is indeed an "essential companion."Whether the owner's interest in his car is the history, the esoterica of 993 numerology and variation, and/or owner-maintenance and repair, this book covers the ground with alacrity.This is the Porsche equivalent to John Muir's well-known VW book, and as such is an important part of the 993 enthusiast's reference library.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good info...But
A well written document covering most of the elements a 993'er would be concerned with but a little underwhealming in terms of photos/graphics quality.

I found the EC a super book and a very easy read. I pick it up and read a section of interest and then discover sometime of new interest. This is my second Streather book on Porsche, and he is by far my favorite porsche writer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Drake's 1st Review
The book is all I expected it to be. There is no record of picking up the first book from the shipper. However after a report to the shipper, the follow-up book came in due haste. The photo illustrations are a little hazy, but the text explains in detail the procedures required to replace and or repair parts of the Porsche Boxster. Models for various years are covered in sequence as one reads the text. The Amazon price was right and cost less comparable to other sources. A good book, and a great car.

Manual is very helpful, but not terribly complete for a DIY.
4-0 out of 5 stars Porsche Boxster Service Manual Review
Book is generally well written, and explains in sufficient detail how to accomplish many tasks.Complicated tasks are not really explained well, even for more experienced mechanics. Book is a must-have for Porsche owners who are considering performing any maintenance/repairs on their own. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely HORRIBLE manual
******One-star is NOT LOW ENOUGH*******2-0 out of 5 stars 1991-99 Ford Explorer Repair Manual
In section 6 the information for the windshield wiper motor is not applicable to my 1996 explorer.Also, there is no information about how to remove / replace the windshield washer spray nozzles.Or how to remove the cowling along the base of the windshield.

1-0 out of 5 stars Chilton's has lost touch with reality.
I purchased this book for needed factual, accurate information of which I got neither. I wanted to replace the lower ball joints on my '99 Ranger, so I bought this book. Take note: on page 8-4 it states specifically that the 1998-99 Ranger does NOT have coil springs. This of course is hogwash as my '99 most definitely has coil springs. In addition, it states on page 8-8 that the ball joint is an integral part of the lower control arm. This, too, is complete hogwash. Please be advised that this book is RIFE with erroneous information - including any pictures contained therein. I have lost all faith in Chilton's ability to present the correct information on ANY automobile. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars More Proficient Motorcycling
This is different enough to Proficient Motorcycling to be worth buying. I like the overall emphasis on avoiding trouble rather than getting out of trouble. There is more emphasis on throttle control which I found helpful. I expect I'll be reading this for the next few years as I continue learning to ride and start venturing out onto the serious twisties. As with the first book, being based on magazine columns ther eis a bit of repetition and some overlap with the first but I enjoy reading it and find it very useful.

3-0 out of 5 stars General Info.
This book was also an interesting read.I was hoping for more technical information.Still, is good for new bikers and a good reminder for old ones.

5-0 out of 5 stars great read, clear explanations
I picked this book up by accident and was very impressed, and read it cover to cover in a few days.
