Format: Paperback
This book is a must for engineers working in the car industry. It is essentially a reference book containing just about anything relevant to automobile design, development and quality engineering.
Note that it is purely a technical work - you can't really read it like you would a textbook or the like, and it works brilliantly for looking up formulae or basic material properties.
It outlines the workings of various systems - ABS or fuel injection with an obvious emphasis on Bosch products - Motronic injection for example, although it is by no means a sales pitch - products are only used for schematics or demonstrations.
All in all, a vital reference, as important as a Machinery's Handbook or a copy of Kempe's if you work in automotive engineering.

Format: Turtleback
This book is astoundingly comprehensive. It is a reference, not a guide. It is not a how-to. It's not going to hand you a solution to any tuning or setup issue on a plate. What it will do is give you enough information and simple math to understand principles and practice. It is also full of reference tables for every aspect of cars. There are pages, sections even, that I may never read. But there are other pages which are pure gold.

Format: Turtleback Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely essential book for anyone working in the automotive industry. It's full of those useful little bits of data that don't always lodge in your brain but become useful later...

On a slightly negative note, the section on quality is a little out of date and doesn't match what is required from some OEMs in terms of process and "philosophy".

That aside, this is one of the most important books you could have on your shelf (or stashed discretely in your desk drawer). Almost everyone I work with either owns, has access to or borrows this book in order to have a sneaky peak - especially when an engineering "basic" slips our minds...

Format: Paperback
When you see the book for the first time you don't think the book will be as complete as it is. It is very extensive, has a lot of pictures and formulas. It covers anything you may want to know, from tires to supercharger systems. This book is a must for anyone serious about understanding the design of the mechanics and electronics of any car.

I found the 3rd edition in the public library in my home town. I had only one thing to say: WANT!

Format: Imitation Leather
My old Automotive Handbook was a few years behind the times so this relatively new edition has served as an update.
Almost twice as thick as the old one and still up to the usual very high standard. Excellent.

A very very very good book, I think that everything you need to know is in there at least the basic notions.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has anything to do in the automotive industry!
