Great content, presented horribly compared to previous editions
on 4 May 2013
So disappointed! As the proud owner of the Sixth edition, which was an all round quality product, in colour and presented with neat tables, high quality photo's and smooth, luxurious paper; the publishers have decided to cut costs and present this like a book costing £4.99. I'm sure that Mark Brinkley's great content is still the same, but after reviewing for 10 minutes and getting a headache from the small writing, on cheap recycled paper (as others have said, very difficult to read) and an absence of any colour throughout, this great book has now taken on the tome of a dull 1950's text book.
In disgust at producing such a cheap, nasty book, that looks akin to books from other publishers at a quarter of the price, I decided to vote with my wallet and buy the far more professionally presented Haynes manual for self-builders (in colour and half the price). Note to Ovolo and Mark Brinkley - please go back to producing a quality book that we can read and proudly present on our bookshelves, rather than this "tat", surrounding fantastic content. This edition is a huge step backwards on almost all fronts, when compared with the sixth edition.
