A lot of the book is devoted to emergency situations, what to do in case of a blow-out, how to drive in bad weather, how to get out of the mud, etc. This is all good stuff to know and it is not taught in the that little book you study with in preparation for your driver's license exam. David also writes about current topics like avoiding car-jacking and pros & cons of different security devices. It also covers wht you should carry in your trunk for an emergency road kit.
This book is for the not-so-mechanically-inclined, it does not tell you how to rebuild your transmission, but it does cover how to find a good mechanic. It does explain how to do all of the things that an amateur would feel confident doing: checking and inspecting fluids, tire care, getting rid of squeaks, etc. It even gives a brief lesson in auto reconditioning.
In my opinion, even if you are a certified mechanic, you could benefit by reading the emergency situation information. If you are an amateur, you can definately learn a lot by reading this book cover to cover.
