Superb handbook for the right audience,
This review is from: Automotive Handbook (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a wonderfully comprehensive and well-written guide for anyone with a serious interest in automotive engineering, be they professional or amateur. The translation is imperfect but I found no obvious examples of technical or even grammatical errors, just clumsiness caused by some literal translations.
It covers the fundamentals of construction, obstacles to be overcome, engines and ancillary components, legislation, engine management systems, chassis structures, safety systems, electrics and lighting and driver aids.
The sections are all similarly structured, guiding you through basics and development to today's standards. The book is written in a highly readable way rather than just presenting cold facts. A number of authors have been involved, but clearly some excellent editorial work has ensured consistency.
The Bosch handbook makes a fascinating read and comprehensive tutorial as well as a first-class reference manual and I'd recommend it without hesitation.
