5-0 out of 5 stars A Bible
This book is so complete and exhaustive that it could be called the Automotive technology Bible! But remember, this book is for the serious reader, not for the occasional reader! Buy this if you are serious about the subject.

I've used this book for my Auto Tech classes and it is the most comprehensive auto tech manual out there. Very informative and highly detailed. Get the accompanying Tech Manual for hands on lessons and projects. No dissapointments!

5-0 out of 5 stars Toyota Magic
"Toyota Production System: Beyond Large-Scale Production" is a very enlightening work by the inventor of lean manufacturing, Taiichi Ohno. This small book is packed with insights and ideas on how to efficiently and effectively run a production system. The Toyota Production is also known as lean manufacturing, entails, among other things, minimising waste through continuous improvement and producing only what is sold, as requested by the customer. This unique and innovative system explains why Toyota makes profits even in tough times when other competitor firms are losing money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lean Production for everyone
Japan manufacturing revolutionized the automobile industry.Japan transformed the automobile industry by applying ideal perfection conditions of zero defect products, reduced inventories, and the generation of endless product inventories.How did Japan accomplish this breakaway?Lean production is the answer.Lean production allowed the Japanese to reduce human labor by ½, manufacturing production space by ½, capital investment by ½, required engineering hours by ½, and reduced production time by ½. US automobile companies were on the defensive and rather than compete head to head in quality and competitiveness with their Japanese counterparts they sought refuge in the political system.
2-0 out of 5 stars Misleading and dated
This is a fairly poorly researched book, despite the authors' credentials; their history of American automobiles is grossly inaccurate and only serves to reinforce incorrect stereotypes. They spend very little time actually describing lean production, preferring to talk about how every other company will go bankrupt because they don't have it. The misreading of the Volvo story is also rather galling, though to be fair, Volvo's team-based approach was already being dismantled (for non-

For those of you long in the tooth you may recall John Cameron Swayze's love-in with Timex watches where in a 60 second commercial he would submit the watch to behemoth like torture, rodeo riding, outboard motors, and then hold the watch up and say, 'it takes a licking and keeps on ticking.'

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Shop Manuals...
Even if you just do basic repairs or routine service to your car, the Bentley manuals are the only real game in town. They are copied directly from BMW original manuals and are very detailed. When I first got my 528, one of the cup holders failed in the back seat. The manual showed me an easy way to remove them. I also chose to replace the center arm rest and trying to figure that out without the manual would have been impossible. With the manual it was a 10 minutes affair. These two items paid for the cost of the manuals and the manuals add to the value of my car when and if I sell it.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but lacks detail
Needed to replace water pump, thermostat, belts and hoses on E39 530, details are lacking. Good source for general information, but most of that is available on the Net.

4-0 out of 5 stars BMW 5 Series (E39) Service Manual: 1997-2002 (BMW 5 Series (E39) (2 Volume Set) (BMW 5 Series (E39))
It's a pity that the technical manual doesn't cover the BMW 525TDS or TD (Diesel versions).These Diesel-engine equipped E39-versions differ of course in the engine mechanics (i.e. a M51TU motor engine), but has also differences in the electrical wiring, hence making the details of the Electrical Diagrams almost useless (when it comes to the details of the connections).

Milliken lays down the fundamentals and advanced topic of vehicle dynamics as applied to racecars.The text is not for beginning or nontechnical readers in the slightest manner.Milliken points out many subtle and difficult areas to understand, which take hours of studying to fully grasp.For those seriously considering a career in this field or to the extremely interested reader, this text is the source of information.

this the 1st time me using this site so i don't have much to say, but i like what i need.i think its nice book for who just start how to work in shop or people who like to work with truck

5-0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to heavy-duty truck systems
We used this book in our diesel technician class.The book gives you an excellent introduction to every aspect of a heavy-duty truck.I usually shy away from books written by more than one author because of lack of continuity or overcoverage in certain areas.In the case of this book, the authors have done a fantasic job of explaining the topics without any assumptions.The book does a good job in covering cluthes, standard transmission, torque converters, drive shafts, axles, and automatic transmissions.On the subject of brakes, I recommend Delmar's "Today's Technician:Medium/Heavy Duty Truck Brakes."If your thinking of buying a book on this subject matter, you can't go wrong with this selection.Be aware that a third edition has been released.

4-0 out of 5 stars E-30 Bentley Manual
The manual was recommended by other BMW E-30 owners and so far it has been pretty helpful.Without it I would not have been able to troubleshoot and find out the problem with the windows of my car.The pictures are black and white and could use many more to show the steps to follow.The electrical diagrams are good.I recommend you buy it if you are going to start working on your car but don't expect lots of pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars Most authoritative and rigorous treatment of ACS I've seen.
Provides the only text I have seen on quaternion math and its relation to more traditional attitude matrices and Euler dynamics. The presentation allows algorithm generation without too much fuss, and it is rigorous butnot to a fault. Definitely graduate level reference material for practicingACS engineers. I have found it indispensable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Intro to Vehicle Dynamics
Most dynamics books are kinda hard to read or dont give adequate examples/problems.I found this book to be useful and easy to read.It covers nearly every topic of the automobile from tires to ride and handling, braking conditions and aerodynamics.All pretty concise but worthwhile.The $100 or so will definitely be worth it.Makes a great reference book for any basic auto dynamics needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics
Thomas Gillespie is able to explain the fundamental principles of vehicle dynamics in his book.For those new to the subject of vehicle dynamics, this work will lay the foundation for more advanced reading.Those with science, math and engineering degrees, or those familiar with technical literature, will find the reading easy to understand in comparison to some other works.This allows the reader to focus their attention on understanding the "big picture," and not getting lost in particular formulae.However, for those doing research in the field or pursuing this as a career, there are more advanced texts available.

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless
Do not buy this book.It has absolutely no detail and states only what you can already figure out using common sense.I wanted help replacing the carburetor on my 1989 Honda Accord.The book says to remove hoses, connections and loosen the mounting nuts and lift out the carburetor and then install the new carburetor the same way the old one was installed---that's it.No help with hose diagrams or information about how to disconnect or reconnect anything.Also, the carburetor won't just lift out---it is necessary to loosen the manifold to get the thing out.The book doesn't even mention that.As I said, the book is useless.I wouldn't have given it even one star, but I had no choice.

1-0 out of 5 stars awful
confusing, no detail.... You cannot wirte a 276 pg book for 10 years worth of 2 different cars...There are no pictures and often little detail on what you are supposed to be looking at...Maybe a good, i mena good mechanic could use this book, but no one else...

4-0 out of 5 stars Has its moments and applications
I own both the Chilton's manual and the service manual and I use them almost an equal amount when working on my '92 Accord.Yes, the Chilton's doesn't contain as much model-specific information as the service manual, but at times the service manual is too technical and difficult to follow.That's when I turn to the Chilton's manual.IMHO it's well worth the price. ...

This was a good book but out of date on many topics. It is a great all around reference or start-up and go book. I decided I wanted to learn about cars so I found this book at a tag sale and now I know the basics. I wouldsuggest this book for its no-nonsense and in-depth approach.

Overall, the book is helpful.It starts off discussing the general pavement types, design methods, and roads tests.Included in this section are the results of findings which, although not something I consider in everyday design, are items that are interesting enough to promote thought in my designs.All in all, I found almost all the chapters useful as they cover stresses in flexible and rigid pavements, rigid and flexible pavement design, drainage design, pavement performance, as well as a few other issues.5-0 out of 5 stars pavement analysis and design

3-0 out of 5 stars Worked for me - barely
Bought this manual so that I could do an engine swap in my 97 318ti.Nothing fancy, old engine failed at 192K and I had a salvage one to take it's place, no upgrade here.These cars can be somewhat complicated with a wiring harness that's a complete maze plus a lot of mechanicals shoved in a small area - there is definitely a specific sequence for assembly.The manual was very helpful for some disassembly and reassembly but was very vague in other areas and for specifics to my exact model.Could I have done my work without this manual?Probably, but it would have been more difficult.On the other hand, if I had to rely solely on this manual and not taken lots of pictures and had online assistance from a 318ti group I probably would have been in trouble.I'd probably buy again, but plan on a second or third source for help in any major work.Worth noting that manual does have a lot of info for areas such as sunroof or ragtop, plus many other areas that might present common problems to an owner.Also worth noting that the manual covers nothing on the lower end of any model - if you need to work on pistons or the crank, don't purchase this manual.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bently's service manual
Bently's service manuals are one of the best sources of information you can get for your BMW or Porsche. Highly recommend any of their books.

5-0 out of 5 stars BMW Manual hits homerun.

1-0 out of 5 stars Book review...a lesson in futility
The author of this book apparantly does not know the value of proof reading. So many mistakes and items that either are misdirected, or do not exist in the text altogether. Never a more frustrating experience than reading and trying to decipher this poorly written book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Errors and incomplete examples, expect some frustration
I received this book on Friday and have spent some time with it over the weekend. In that short time I've found errors in formulas and examples that fell short. For example, there was a section that talked about how voltage drop is affected by the length of a conductor and even gave a formula to calculate it, but in the example following the definition, it used another formula that didn't factor in conductor length, without explaining why the length-dependent formula was not used. Another example: A calculation question on one of the review questions had an answer that didn't match the formula used to obtain it. After hunting around, I found the correct formula, which did result in the answer listed. Ultimately, I think this book will prove useful, but I would say to anyone considering using this book that they shouldn't be surprised if they find calculations that don't make sense and wind up consulting other books to make sure they completely understand how things are calculated.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Built One!
Great book, made the process straightforward and understandable. If you simply follow the steps in the book you will end up with a really good little sports car. If you also incorporate some information from Caroll Smith and Allen Staninforth's books you will have a car that will beat the pants off a Caterham.
5-0 out of 5 stars This is the beginning
I know how to weld, cut metal design and tune suspensions from scratch adapt junk to something useful the list of things I can do seems endless sometimes. Before I got this book I could do none of these things THIS is the book that gave me the bug which bit me and inspired me to learn to do all these things and to search for knowledge online in books etc. It all began with this book. This book has forced me to take back all my sarcastic cynical remarks about actually building your own car when my wife bought this book for me. It is not a perfect book If it was I wouldnt have learned half of what I do now about suspensions etc since ford cortinas are not sold here But that is part of this books charm its hook is in getting you off your back side and into the pursuit of your own personal sports car. Its been a fantastic ride and I hope you buy a copy too

5-0 out of 5 stars We all can be car builders!!!
I usually read this kind of books from cover to cover, and I did't thought it was going to be that exiting!
