Not bad, but...
on 7 May 2013
I had high hopes for this... having just bought a decomposing Saab, and believing that The Complete Story would represent a guiding light through its quirks and more characterful moments (and for when the Haynes manual was just too bewildering). As such, it's not *bad*... but it's a bit meagre, content-wise. When you take out the (abundant) photos, you're down to less than 70 pages (quite small, wide-margined, double columned) of actual text. Within this, there's not masses of info that doesn't exist in the public domain... while the buyers' guide is simply too generalised to be of any real help at all.
When this was first published, when t'internet was in its (relative) infancy, I reckon it would've made a lot more sense. Now, when it's possible to find much of its contents online, the case isn't quite so clear cut. It'll look nice on your upmarket Scandinavian coffee table, mind.
