This book is great for the complete beginner. A very nice introduction to the most wonderful and charming farming vehicle also made for desert driving!

Even though I live in the cold north, this book is full of practical tips that suits me. For instance: how to drive when you're off road, what's wrong, doctor? (The doctor is in this case the book.)

I notice that quite a lot of my fellow Land Rover-owners and Land Rover-admirers now think that I know a lot about what may have caused things, and how to fix it.

As a woman I appreciate being taken seriously, especially if I have to give in, and send my dear Defender off to professionals. (Once I had to show the service man where the battery is located in a Defender ...)

A very useful book, and not just for Land Rover owners: Chapters 4 and 5 (respectively, on fuels and workshops) were a real eye opener, and by themselves well worth buying the book.

Good info if you really need it 19 Jun 2007
By David Somers - Published on Amazon.com
Originally written in 1989, and revised in 2003 (complete with comments that you should consider a 300TDI over a TD5 for third world use - and that at the time they were still available for export), this book is published by LR for those who are going to ship their 90's and 110's off to places without local dealers. (And where graded track will be the best to hope for.) If you are within driving distance of your dealer or return to your suburban house on Sunday evening you don't need this book.

Seven chapters cover:
1) Which Defender? explains the options / differences and why you might want them. Final word: find dealer with experience where you're going.
2) What Spares? and 6) Which Extras? some good ideas on what should be in the vehicle and at base camp, and how to get them there and keep them in usable condition.
3) Who Drives? How to operate the Defender. I felt most of this information was readily available elsewhere (one of my faves is Jim Allen's Four Wheeler's Bible). And if you can swing the logistics, a "Land Rover Experience" full-day or longer class for your drivers who are new to the off-road environment is well worth the investment.
4) What Fuel? good info on keeping your fuel at basecamp. Especially when shipments can only come in every few months.
5) Which Workshop? laying out a maintenance area and program for maintaining the vehicles.
7) What If? survival information (mostly not vehicle specific) with concentration on high temperature environments.

If you're planning an expedition where you'll be at a new place every night, Tom Sheppard's Vehicle Dependent Expedition book is back in print (2003 softcover edition $35), and I would read that first. It will take longer, but will cover a lot more subjects. Then come back to this book to see if you've forgotten anything.
This book concentrates more on the "base camp" type of operations. So if you are starting a safari company or NGO effort this is the kind of stuff you'll need to know. (But don't skip VDE in your planning stages.)
