3.0 out of 5 stars Don't get the Kindle edition 22 Jun 2014
By William L. Troth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got the Kindle version lured by the lower price. Although the content is excellent on the Kindle the numerous sidebars and illustrations make it hard to follow. Also, the black and white photos are not as illustrative as a print version. Kindle are great for general reading but not for technical manuals like this.and r
5.0 out of 5 stars review of "High-performance Ignition Systems" 9 Mar 2014
By Darlene M. Petri - Published on Amazon.com
decisions! decisions! decisions! Working on an old car, race car or something new and special, performance starts with ignition systems(and ends with brakes,another story altogether). Knowing what to use and why makes that special automotive project that much easier. Todd Ryden speaks from experience with a hands on approach and his work with manufacturers of performance ignition systems. I'm convinced all I need for my "frog eye" Sprite is a Pertronix ignition system. But down the road, who knows? But Todd will be there to steer me right. Buy the book and learn for yourself what I am talking about.
5.0 out of 5 stars It was given to me for an early review and I loved it. 25 Feb 2014
By Chris Luksha - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book. I am not a high performance auto person but I wanted a good ignition system reference and I got it. The pictures are very well done and the explanations are very well thought out.

Thank you for sending this to me. It will stay on my shelf for a long time coming. I love it.

If you want better explanations of how ignition systems (and more) work, then spend the money. You won't be disappointed.
