This is a must have book if you are in the auto detailing industry.
A week later, one of those detailers told me that when he started, he went to the book store and bought 2-3 books on detailing. "There's no comparison," he told me. "The other books are useless compared to Renny's. His book is very honest and full of real-life experiences. There is no easy way to get rich in this business, but Renny does a great job of setting out all the "details" on what is necessary (technical and business), to be successful."
I am almost done reading the book. It flows nicely from one subject to the next. The "What would you have differently" sections are really cool. Industry experts share what they would have done differently if they could go back in time- these are all VERY successful people so read carefully and listen to what they say.
I too, have about 3 other detailing books. Most of them just label things, but Renny's voice is in this book- it talks with you, not "at" you. You will not be disappointed.

The pros: I would say the quality of the material and I got the Kindle edition for like $10. The price helps a college student.
The cons: There should be a part 2 to this because it is really good.
Some more tips do not make the same mistakes that I did when I starting detailing for practice. Learn from someone because I spent about $500 in equipment and supplies that I do not really need. Also learn from the junkman2000 in youtube its free and he is pretty chill.Read more ›
