"This is a wonderful book with many gorgeous illustrations of the cutaways." (David O'Malley IPMS/USA 2015-11-23)
"Kimble's book is generously illustrated with his drawings, of course, but he also tells the stories behind the drawings, how he came to be contracted to do them, and the research he did to be able to make them as accurate as possible. If you're an automotive nerd like I am, this is great stuff." (Ol' Skool Rodz 2015-11-30)
"Trust us, you'll savor this feast." (Hemmings Classic Car 2016-01-07)

From the Back Cover
David Kimble’s Cutaways: The Techniques and the Stories Behind the Art, Kimble reveals the secrets, techniques, procedures, and dedication to craft that is required to produce these amazing illustrations. He covers the step-by-step procedures while producing fresh artwork for this book featuring a McLaren Can-Am car as well as a vintage Harley-Davidson. Although the procedures covered here are unique to Kimble, and pretty much a pipe dream to mere mortals, this book provides an inside look into how he does it. Also included are the stories and tales of how it all started, traveling the world to illustrate cars, behind the scenes with manufacturers, the Corvette years, as well as a gallery of many other illustrations.
Never before has David Kimble provided a look into his cutaway "skunkworks," or shared the procedures for bringing these beautiful technical illustrations to life. This book is a must-have for any automotive or art fan.

If you‘re a Kimble cutaway crossection illustration fan, you need to purchase this book!
I doubt if readers, especially those unfamiliar with technical art, will understand the methodology of Kimble's techniques as explained in the book, but so what - just "looking at the pictures" is well worth many times the cost of this book.
