From Publishers Weekly
Can-do authors Sussman and Glasak-Tenet follow up their best selling Dare to Repair, a home repair manual, with a female-friendly guide to proper care and maintenance for a woman's second home: her car. This comprehensive, smartly written guide urges women to "take a proactive approach to maintaining your car rather than the typical reactive approach." Knowing that some readers won't be willing or able to tinker around under the hood, the authors include both do-it-yourself and do-it-for-me solutions. Beginning with the basics (how to read the car manual, how to open the hood) and explaining every system of the car with clear illustrations and understandable, if unavoidably dry, text, the book excels at breaking down common repairs and basic maintenance, such as changing tires, oil and brake fluid. The perfect size to fit in the glove compartment, this easy-to-read primer is for anyone-regardless of gender-looking to cut down on repair bills or feel more at ease when dealing with mechanics.

There are do-it-yourself as well as do-it-for-me sections, so you will know what you can tackle or what you need help with.
This is a great book to have around the house for when you need it. My husband is currently in Iraq, and with him being gone Im in charge of repairs of the house, and our two vehicles, and this book has already saved me!
I kept on flipping through, and found more wastes of time,and even some incorrect information.
I used to own a copy of "Auto Repair for Dummies" I intended to order that, but ordered this instead because it was cheaper. Auto Repair for Dummies tells you how to work on your own car so you can avoid most expensive mechanic fees. Do not waste your time on this book! BLEH
There are better books, like "Recipes For Car Care," which offer simplified information without mocking the reader's intelligence.
I also bought "Auto Upkeep: Basic Car Care, Maintenance, and Repair" by Michale & Linda Gray and it is awesome. I have now been using that book, and it really helped me when I went to the mechanic last week to argue for a fair price.
