Are You Into A Lot of Diagrams?,
This review is from: Auto Fundamentals: How and Why of the Design, Construction, and Operation of Automobiles : Applicable to All Makes of and Models (Hardcover)
Using many diagrams and a utilitarian style, this book aims to train future mechanics. No chances are taken ("inverted" is defined) and no fact is too obvious (dipsticks are explained). The authors struggle with the science: the two contradictory conventions for depicting current flow are explained as an ongoing scientific controversy; engine oils are "distillated".
There's nothing special about the content; it follows the format of the ASE auto tech tests. The abundant manufacturers' diagrams help, but I feel sorry for anyone forced to learn from this book.
