3.0 out of 5 stars Nice photo history of a legendary car! 26 Mar 1999
By F. Dowdle - Published on
This book has very nice photos of the Volkswagen in its various "disguises" from all over the world. There are few US specicification cars pictured, most are UK or European models. For a general overview of the type, it is very good. For those looking for a history of the export models made for US consumption, this is not the book. Nitpicking here I know, but as an example the horn ring and steering wheel for the sedan ("bug") were redesigned for the 1964 US model. The 1966 (UK) model pictured has the old style ring and wheel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Photography 19 Dec 1997
By - Published on
This book has the best studio type photography that I have ever seen in a VW history. I also found the Technical Appendix is among the best for a quick review of the major changes in the VW Type I through the years. The historical photos are reprinted in a crisp format, and are less grainy than I have seen, so these often seen photos seem somehow new. The text is an accurate rehash so an "8" is the highest rating I can give. This lavishly illustrated volume is worth the price. It is a good addition to any VW library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Mar 2013
By John T. Lyons - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a comprehensive history of the beetle as well as Volkswagons in general but the focus is mainly on the beetle. The text is accurate and is written by someone who really knows his stuff. The highlights of the book are the illustrations. They are absolutely first rate and beautifully printed. Absolutely gorgeous in this large format book. It's quite an expensive book if new but the used one I got was in very good shape with just some slight damage to the dust jacket but in perfect condition inside. If you're a bugnut or know someone who is this is the holy grail.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great price and fast delivery. I'e had 5 VW Beetles and one Rabbit in my life the firsty being a 1949 bug I bought in Germany when in the service. They are truly an iconic automobile. This book i like a VW Bug Bible. For anyone who has owned a bug it is a real trip down memory lane, with great pictures and text.
