3.0 out of 5 stars A lazy effort from a knowledgeable writer.
I bought this book at the same time as 'Desmodue Twins' by the same author. In my opinion, while the author may be very knowledgeable on Ducatis, there is not a great deal of information in either of these books - they are a little on the thin side, and much of what is in one book is also in the other - there is also a great deal of the book taken up by such basic...

3.0 out of 5 stars A lazy effort from a knowledgeable writer., 8 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ducati Desmoquattro Twins - 851, 888, 916, 996, 998, St4, 1988 to 2004: The Essential Buyer's Guide (Essential Buyer's Guide Series) (Paperback)
I bought this book at the same time as 'Desmodue Twins' by the same author. In my opinion, while the author may be very knowledgeable on Ducatis, there is not a great deal of information in either of these books - they are a little on the thin side, and much of what is in one book is also in the other - there is also a great deal of the book taken up by such basic information as ' what to think about when buying ANY vehicle'. While this may be useful for a complete novice, I was looking for more detailed information re particular issues with these Ducati models, based on experience of using them. While there was some of this - which could of course save you from making a costly mistake, it is hardly comprehensive, and in my opinion this is lazy writing. For example, there are only technical details on 3 specific models in this range, none of which I was interested in buying - and this information doesn't need a lot of researching, so why not put it in the book - saving paper ? The only good thing I can say is - if there was one fact in the book which saves you from buying a pup, then it has to be worth the purchase price, but that is it.
Also - not enough photos - when describing a potential fault with an obscure part, how about a photo to show where to find the part on the bike ? They are not all included, so the reader is none the wise where to look.
