4.0 out of 5 stars Great Coffee Table Book
As a Cadillac ethusiast, I was excited when I heard there would be a new book on Cadillacs (with pictures)! Many of the other Cadillac books tend to be rather dry recitals of engine statistics. "The Cadillac Century" places its emphasis on the importance of the vehicles in relation to America's love with its automobiles. However, its more attractive prose...

1.0 out of 5 stars Research The Material
This book was written after the Cadillac LaSalle Clubs Grand National in 1997. Many of the pictures were taken at that event. Unfortunatly, it appears that the author spent a couple of days taking photos and doing mediocre research at best. Many photos are inaccurately described. It would seem that this book was published to make a quick dollar as opposed to providing an...

This review is from: The Cadillac Century (Hardcover)
As a Cadillac ethusiast, I was excited when I heard there would be a new book on Cadillacs (with pictures)! Many of the other Cadillac books tend to be rather dry recitals of engine statistics. "The Cadillac Century" places its emphasis on the importance of the vehicles in relation to America's love with its automobiles. However, its more attractive prose and colorful pictures do pay a price in accuracy. For more accuracy, you may wish to consult "Standard Catalog of Cadillac 1903-1990" published by Krause Publications, Inc. I am able to distinguish many recent (1985-present) Cadillacs by sight, and the captions to almost all of the pictures during this time period contain errors (which tends to add doubt to the accuracy of other aspects of the book). Attention to this detail would go a long way to making this book the Cadillac of Cadillac books. That being said, few other books contain so many beautiful color pictures of the greatest car of the 20th century. At only $, it belongs in every Cadillac enthusiasts library (and on their coffee tables).

This review is from: The Cadillac Century (Hardcover)
This book was written after the Cadillac LaSalle Clubs Grand National in 1997. Many of the pictures were taken at that event. Unfortunatly, it appears that the author spent a couple of days taking photos and doing mediocre research at best. Many photos are inaccurately described. It would seem that this book was published to make a quick dollar as opposed to providing an accurate history of the Cadillac automobile. As a member of the Cadillac-LaSalle Club, I consider it a joke.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED THIS!!!, October 10, 2001
By 
A Positive Guy "Jay" (San Antonio, Texas United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Cadillac Century (Hardcover)
If you are like me and have a long standing love affair with the world's best and most beautiful car, the Cadillac, then this is a must-have book for you. The text is full and rich without being a recitation of statistics and the pictures of the different models over the years are superb.
I don't know how anyone can look at this book and not agree that these are the most beautiful cars ever made. From the LaSalle of old, to the Fleetwood Sixty Special of the '50's to the Brougham d'Elegance of the 80's and 90's, it's all here! No way can you be disappointed with this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full Of Errors, October 1, 2010
By 
andrew p murphy (tellico plains, tn United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Cadillac Century (Hardcover)
This book was obviously written and edited by people who know absolutely nothing about Cadillacs. There are glaring inaccuracies on almost every page-misidentified cars, production dates, features, etc., etc. It almost defies belief. The book does contain many beautiful photos but the rest of the book is utter garbage.
