Let me preface this with saying I'm interested specifically in chassis/suspension design so my comments are limited to that portion of the book. (Of course, since the title is about suspension disign, that's pretty much the whole book.)
After reading his latest book, I felt let down by the lack of new information. I guess there's only so much to automotive suspension design, yet assumed the new book would have "new" information, necessitating it's publication; I just don't see it.
My advice: If you don't have any of his books, then get this one. It's very good and includes everything from his previous works. But if you already have "Race and Rally Car Source Book," don't bother.
Another good one is "race car engineering & mechanics" which goes into more detail and is probably a better book. I really love the pictures in this book though... If your planning on actually building a car you'll still need "tune to win" along with either one. as for "Race Car Vehicle Dynamics" that ones still on the wish list($)...
By the time you have completed this book, you will have a true understanding of all aspects of a well designed and implemented suspension system. Well done and highly recommended.

OK for basic information. Detailed enough for someone that has not been directly involved with set ups. Kinda suspension 101 or a prerequisite.Published on August 23, 2013 by mark m. behlke
