3.0 out of 5 stars Great content, difficult to navigate. 5 Oct 2009

The only reason I gave this three stars is because it's difficult to read on the Kindle. There's no working table of contents, which is frustrating for a book like this where you want to jump around from car to car rather then reading the entire book sequentially.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but far from great 26 Dec 2009
By E. Thomsen - Published on Amazon.com

It's overall not a bad book. Each article gives a short but informative review of each car, enough to give a base feel of what each car is like. The range of cars listed is nice also, it's not just exotics costing $100,000+ but more "common" cars worthy of sport car status are listed too.

So, why do I only give 3 stars out of five?

Simple:

1) As stated by someone else, no table of contents. mind you it's not a huge book so it's not hard to just thumb through it and find a car. But having one would be handy also.

2) I'm not sure why the one fellow claims the pictures are great. To be honest, they aren't. They look like they were either a) photocopies of a color print or b) black and white printings of a color image. Either way, I have to agree with another person when I say it would almost be better if there were no photos. About the only thing the photos do for me is make me want to look up a color high quality image, not the low quality black and white. As an aside I'm not knocking black and white images, if they were of good quality that would be fine. But they aren't, the cover image is MUCH better then the ones found inside.

Anyway, if the author writes another book, and IF he addresses said issues in that book I'd consider buying it. But if he doesn't, I'd truly have to think on that. I don't feel ripped off, but I don't feel like the book was a bargain even at the current price either.

Not a bad book if you like reading, however it is easier to use the internet to do your research about latest car models. But if you are book reader this makes a great coffee table book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible pictures 2 Dec 2009
By M. Faletra - Published on Amazon.com

There is a lot of great information, but the pictures could not be worse. I think showing NO pictures would have been better than seeing the awful pictures that were included. I'm not too surprised that someone would think the book is great on the Kindle. Unfortunately, I'm sure the pictures look the same on the Kindle as they do in the actual book... black, white, grey and washed out. A big disappointment!
