If your a gearhead who wants to try their hand at some body work this makes a great addition to your "technical library". With no experience other than reading this book (and referencing it while I worked) I was able to work out a well-crumpled fender on our little Ford Escort wagon.
It's not expensive (although a good set of body hammers and dollies will be) and gives a good insight into the "mysteries" of "bangin'" out a fender.
