Reviewing Dennis Adler’s new book

“I’m not enough of a expert on Porsche books (I only own maybe 18 or 20) to be dead certain about how many of the thousands of aforementioned publications are as cleanly written about the subject, but I can sure recommend this one as giving very full value for money.” Doug Stokes reports.

An LA Car dual book review

We review two books: “Guide to European Automotive Electrical Systems” and “Physics for Gearheads – An Introduction to Vehicle Dynamics, Energy, and Power”. Okay, on the surface, these two books look alike, both are large-format, soft cover, technical textbook-style books, both are published by one of the best technical book publishers in the business, and both, in one way and another, relate to cars. And both are good reads for the right reader. Doug Stokes gives you two book reviews for the price of one.
