Format: Hardcover
Most Americans have the luxury of service stations at the trailhead and cell phones to call for help if we become stuck off road. For those who live in the west, where a cell phone signal is two hours away and a breakdown may be more than inconvenient, Jack Jackson's The Off-Road 4-Wheel Drive Book has good experience and insight to offer. The British point of view makes the book a bit quirky and centered on Rovers, but a refreshing perspective. You won't find the fat tire, bigger is better mentality here. Good information on self-reliant get there and back 4 wheeling is what this book is about. The preponderance of desert travel observations were particularly useful for the locale I explore. Get it and read it with Brad DeLongs 4-Wheel Freedom. You will not want for more information.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book to check out of the library, but I don't want to own it. It's written by a British author who writes from his experience in the British and European off-road automotive marketplace and on adventures in Africa and the Middle East. There are some significant contrasts to North American recreational four-wheeling that renders the book less relevant for that purpose. However, overall the book introduces four-wheeling very thoroughly, almost comprehensively. Therefore it is a great book for people with no prior experience or knowledge. For the experienced off-roader, the unique perspective is valuable particularly if the reader is from North America, but they will have to sift through a lot of basics and discard information that's only trivial for their purposes. Because the book attempts to be so comprehensive, it does not address any subject in depth. Again, this would be a great library book. Check it out.

Format: Hardcover
This book was helpful in describing all around driving techniques, and basically just alot of information for the extremely novice wheeler. Very slanted toward the Euro market, with all Euro names for vehicles, (Vauxhall for Isuzu, etc.) very different styles of vehicle modification, etc. Not an easy book to read cover to cover.

Format: Hardcover
An excellent book, covering the off-roading scene in England,
the rest of Europe, the Sahara Desert, and the Middle East.
Jack Jackson gives the reader much useful advice on how to
travel through very difficult country, and summarizes the
4x4 vehicles available in Europe.
My own book "4-Wheel Freedom: The Art of Off-Road Driving"
covers off-road recreation and all-weather driving in the
USA. The serious off-road recreationist will want to add
both these books to his or her library.
