It has modern cars like the Bugatti Veyron in it but not the McLaren F1 or the Pagani Zonda.
The original book was strongly biased to American cars that mean little to British readers. The new version is the same. The Amazon preview option lets you see the index of cars featured so you can make your own mind up about the balance.
As normal with DK books, it looks great with stunning photographs and it has plenty of interesting snippets to read.
We would all disagree if we created our own lists of cool cars. Mine would lean heavily towards British and Italian sports cars of the 1960s and 1970s because that's when my interest in cars was most rampant and I didn't have to face up to the fact that I could never bring myself to buy a supercar. Or at least, not unless I had a really big win on the Euro lottery.
Those differences of opinion are part of the fun of books like this and you can learn about vehicles you wouldn't have been interested in at face value. I accept that but I think this leans too far towards American cars. I'm also not sure about 11 Ferraris and only 2 Lamborghinis, 2 Maseratis, 1 Alfa and nothing from ISO.
It's all about opinions.
Mine about the book are:
3 stars for the cars selected,
5 stars for the presentation and very attractive price creating an average of 4 stars.
