    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Lean book at there on Product Development
    Lean originated on the production floor over sixty years ago in Japan. But Toyota product development has been sadly overlooked by corporate America. Where is the connection between Toyota stellar production practices and Toyota product development? You can't argue with the tried and true principles to systematically eliminating waste--that is the bedrock of the lean philosophy. Lean thinking is making inroads to a number of different environments and industries beyond discrete assembly like car making. Does waste occur in non-manufacturing? Oh yes, and it has largely been an untapped, dormant opportunity for applying lean. Improvement initiatives are being re-focused on office settings and now product development. There aren't many product development(PD)lean books out there but, Liker's book is excellent--it is so thorough, well researched, logical and well written! A lean novice may have difficulty because it is not "lean 101" and PD is not quite the same as lean manufacturing. But, if I forced to pick a single book on lean product development--this would be my #1 pick. It is such a good start point for lean PD. The lean benefits are self evident: cut development time in half and never miss milestones?That's has been the Toyota norm. Liker's book will walk you thru the 14 principles on how to get there the subsystem levels (Processes-People-Tools/Technology). If your PD efforts are adrift, it's reassessment time. Start here. You won't be sorry.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must read
    A very detailed and at times difficult read. However, it is a must for anyone involved in product development.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Toyota Product Development System
    I found Morgan and Liker's new book The Toyota Product Development System to be an excellent discussion of the key fundamentals that are missing in Detroit today based on my experience in the automotive industry. The most important reason Toyota is best is because of the way they develop and value people. This book describes the basics required to build a great Engineering organization. Engineering is the foundation that drives cost, quality and timing. This book should be required reading for everyone in the automobile industry from top management down.Morgan and Liker provide a great map for going forward for any company that designs and manufactures a product regardless of industry. The key is to start the Journey. This book is a great place to start. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Guide, menu, toolbook, cookbook, non Toyota case studies...whatever you name it. It helps!
    For those who had been deeply impressed by "The Toyota Way" and want to implement it to your business, this book is an excellent pracctical guide. There are plenty of charts, flow diagrams, tables, checklists, non Toyota examples, action plans, report forms etc etc which I find very helpful. I particularly like the "Reflect and Learn from the Process" Section (summary/key points/action items) in the end of each chapter. A book well worths its price! Highly recommended! However, please read "The Toyota Way" before this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bicycle repair and maintenance
    Excellant manual! Great info and well illistrated. I use mine a lot!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great book... could be better...
    This book does a great job covering everything basic to intermediate.I'd highly recommend it and I think that it's the best I've seen in this price range.It's not Barnett's manual but it is better than the Park tools and Zinn books in my opinion.I'd like to see more (and better quality) pictures.I've seen high rescolor pictures in books half this price.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Complete, well-written, easy-to-understand.
    I like doing repairs and maintenance myself to save money. Now that I have a good bicycle, I want to service it myself. This repair manual is nice. It is full of good illustrations and pictures, tips, and advice. Most things are explained in an easy-to-understand manner. It's obvious that the author likes servicing bicycles, and that he wants the reader to enjoy it too. This makes the book pleasant reading material as well.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good!Needs Sentence Building Though!
    Here I sit, surrounded by language courses.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good but Lacking in Conversational Practice
    I have been using the course for two years now and I can say that I have learnt loads more Spanish than I did for several years in high school. One important tip - the best results are obtained from copying the disks to a portable player (IPod or something similar) and using them while you're walking, on an airplane flight or something similar. The abiliy to pause the recordings, where you need more time to respond, or to rewind or restart a section, where you need to revise individual parts of a lesson, is crucial to getting the most out of the course (or any similar audio course for that matter).
    4-0 out of 5 stars I'm On My Way!
    For many years I harbored the belief that I have a facility for foreign languages.Unfortunately, I never tested my belief, until now.I resolved to learn Spanish as part of my preparation for a dream vacation in Spain.The Spanish Complete Learn in Your Car set has gotten me off to a great start.Within a few lessons, I began using Spanish words and phrases without thinking of the English language equivalent.In other words, I began thinking in Spanish!I reached lesson five in no time.As a result I'm confident that I could find my way around airports, train stations, and bus terminals.I begin each lesson by listening to an English word or phrase followed by the Spanish translation.In the early stages, I repeat the term twice, exactly as it is pronounced by one of the native Spanish speakers.Before long, I'm able to supply the word or phrase in Spanish before it is spoken in Spanish.My commutes to and from work have never been so productive, and the miles seem to fly by. ...

    Henry S. Raymond's Learn in Your Car French is clearly and indisputably one of the best 'bang for your buck'car French courses on the market.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Purchase
    I have taken a few French classes and this was a fun easy refresher to teach and go over the basics in spoken French language.It also helps refine pronunciation and was exactly what I was looking for.It might be a little challenging for someone with no experience at all in the language.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The First 3 CDs Helped Tremendously!
    I had to go to Paris for a conference and didn't know the first bit of French other than "Bon jour!" and "Oui." I searched through many options and, after reading all the reviews, decided on French Complete. I spent two months (about 3-4 hours per week) listening to the first 3 CDs (Level 1) over and over and over again in the car. By the time I left for my trip, I was surprisingly comfortable with basic French conversation. I was confident I would be just fine. Read more

    First of all, I have used both, but this manual is significantly more in depth than the Chilton's guide for these models, especially in the electrical and body schematics.It's definitely worth the extra bucks for the breadth of expert advice and will most likely keep good resale value long after the car is gone.

    I can honestly say that this is the manual I recommended to all of my Volkswagen owning friends.All of them.Surprisingly all of them bought it.Not only does this manual help me fix problems that are serious to moderate to just plain weird it helps me learn alot about my car as well.It helped me learn the things I need to get my car "Bella" the Volkswagen in a better shape.I recently had to change my water pump and I was going to take it to the mechanic which cost me alot of money, and instead of taking it to the mechanic I used the simple knowlege and the manual and I changed my water pump.Yes it has that too.

    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-

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well written!
    The problem with most books dealing with Economics is that they are poorly presented and not enjoyable to read, being stuffed with incomprehensible graphs and technical jargon. This book avoids those pitfalls and is both entertaining and informative. Alfred Marshall would be proud.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cogent rundown on why the economy matters to you personally
    In this brief, cogent book, author Tim Harford provides an accessible, entertaining introduction to economic thinking. This deftly written report belongs on the shelf of anyone with an interest in economic matters - and as the author makes clear, everyone has an interest in economic matters. He deftly punctures the balloons of those who advocate fair trade coffee, protectionism, government-underwritten medical care and other such policies. These tactics may seem humane on the surface, but he contends that they often merely advance the selfish goals of the few at the expense of the many. If the book has a weakness, it is Harford's tendency to take certain points of political opinion for granted and to state them as moral choices without qualification or proof. For instance, he puts forth the admirable - though some would say questionable - notion that governments are obliged to cushion the shock of unemployment. That, however, is a quibble. We highly recommend this concise, comprehensive book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating discovery of the interconnectiveness of everything
    It is entirely possibly if I had had access to book like this when I was growing up, I would have become an economist. Harford takes apart many of the conundrums in our modern world and shows how trends, political and corporate decisions have all shaped the world in which we live in.

    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).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Race Engineers bible
    I think i've bought this book a bit too early in my learning curve!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Source of Vehicle Dynamic Information
    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good reference work
    A very informative book on the engineering fundementals, it would be good if a second edition with more mordern race vehicles was in the works. ... Read more

    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars BMW Manual
    This is a very thorough book with a very useful troubleshooting section. It has plenty of detail though because it appears to be BMW backed it refers to the use of BMW special tools and doesn't give many alternatives

    There is no way anyone should buy that thing for that much!You can go anywhere else and find it for cheaper by almost two hundred dollars!This is just crazy!!!!!!!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars more essential than David Ball on Damages !
    Over the last 5 years I only battle against lawyers paid by the big business insurance industry.My practice is insurance breach of contract law and auto.I hold myself out as a trial lawyer because I do not accept the crap offers from the claims assessment software that every insurer uses to evaluate human life.To that end, in order to do right by your clients you must challenge the insurers of your clients or the people who harm your clients (we can not sue the insurer of the negligent driver directly)And you must be armed with proven techniques that work.That is what this book is, one of those books you tab, highlight, copy, reuse, a reference tool.This book is a must, an absolute must for anyone dealing with insurers in any capacity.It is chocked full of useful, practicable information that you can use right away.It teaches you how to teach a jury on what 'reasonable' means when they delay and deny meritorious claims.If you are a mill and settle every case without filing, accepting the low ball offers, not doing right by your client, etc., then just keep doing what you've always done and you'll get what you always gotten.But if you correct the injustices, fight for what is right, are on the side of society that helps people, not corporations, then you must by this book and use it. I have read all of David Ball's books, attended ATLA juror bias college, conventions, books on closing, jury bias, Jury Works, TLC, NITA, etc. and with all of that I found this book very useful.I refer to it before every deposition, trial, etc.I do not know the authors of the book, (I wish I did) but they are super accomplished trial lawyers.I speak from my heart on a book that will help people who care about people - and that means winning jury trials because that is the only check on our society.Remember what Thomas Jefferson said, "the right to a jury trial is more important that the right to vote."If you practice insurance bad faith law, auto law, or any law where insurance is involved, you must own this book.(...) ...
