About the Author

<DIV>

Dennis Overholser purchased his first hot rod during high school, a 1933 Ford three-window coupe with no engine or transmission. After high school Dennis attended Nashville Auto Diesel College, and it wasn t long before he was in school again, this time for electronics, paid for by the U.S. Air Force. In 1970 Dennis started as a mechanic at the Clemons Tractor Company. Twenty years later he left the Clemons Tractor Company to work for Painless Wiring, engineering wiring systems for the street rod market. In addition to his work designing street rod components and building hot rods for his friends and himself, Dennis is active in a variety of hot rod and street rod organizations, including NSRA, KKOA, and SEMA. Between designing and building, Dennis holds seminars on automotive electrical systems for customers and organizations across the country, at events like the Street Rod Nationals and The Rod & Custom Americruise.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The basic content is excellent, though a glossary would be a fine improvement.

Two kinds of flaws weaken the book.

First, The use of many photographs is an excellent aid to comprehension. Unfortunately, many of the photos are so "tight" that it is unclear whar part of the car is shown. He leaves it unclear in what order the photos should be studied - right to left then top to bottom versus top to bottom then right to left. This causes some confusion.

Second, the guy needed a proofreader. The book is riddled with little mistakes that are distracting. Examples include misspelled words, accidental substitutions of the wrong word, and occasional simple grammatical errors.

If he does a revision at some point, these will be easily solved problems. These problems don't make it a bad book - but they kept it from being an exceptionally good book.

If you are buying this book to wire your hot rod with out a painless wiring harness. Do not buy this book. As it only pertains to a painless wiring harness. And when you buy a painless wiring harness all this information is included with the purchase.

The book is specific to Painless wiring but can be very useful understanding wiring basics and harnesses made by other manufacturers. I found it to be well written and easy to understand. Learned a lot from it. I would definitely recommend it.
