5.0 out of 5 stars A real eye-opener
Until I read this book, I had been one of the many drivers who had considered an SUV for family transport.

It really provided an insight into the mindset of the auto-industry, and made it an easier transition into an MPV.

A cracking read, from cover to cover.

This review is from: High and Mighty: SUV's - The World's Most Dangerous and How They Got That Way (Hardcover)
It's starts off an interesting read and quite persuasive. However it degenerates into tedium and proves to be one of those things you love or hate.

The reason behind that is quite simply the extrapolation that occurs trying to justify a point whilst ignoring salient points and counter arguments. One example being pollution problem. The vehicles are broadly damned to eternity for being dirty. Not quite the full story as many share common parts with other vehicles which do not come in for such vitriol . A good example being the diesel engined Jeep Grand Cherokee which shared its mercedes diesel lump with a massive part of their successful overall car and van range. Proves you really shouldn't let a good fact get in the way of an opinion.

Same problem applies to ignoring NCAP ratings in favour of anecdotal frighteners in the book.

There are more examples and all serve to allow the more objective reader one evidenced conclusion which os that It's is a heavily biased publication. it seems to set out support the anti brigade rather than provoke discussion and consideration to allow the, to reach their own conclusions.

But then, aren't all extremists the same ?

Waste of money overall.
