Highly Recommended - everything you'd expect from the haynes series of books.
This book is easy to understand although a complete novice may struggle to follow some of the techniques and terminology.
The manual covers every aspect of the Beetle and Karmann Ghia from troubleshooting to actually getting in there and trying to fix it (example of problem: vehicle pulls to one side when braking - a diagnosis and solution follows)
The book comprises of step-by-step procedures for basic maintenance which are well illustrated and includes tips i wish i had come across 10years ago!
note: although its based on a complete teardown and rebuild, dont expect to be able to pull apart a beetle and put it back together. Its more based upon an individual section at a time such as brakes and then another section on engine electrical systems.
