I loved hearing their voices as I read...I liked the listener questions. The other information was a lot to absorb (but I am not especially interested in cars).

This is exactly the book that I wanted to read so I could understand how a car functions. This is not written for those who know the auto/mechanical things inside out, but for everyday user / beginner. Along with this book, also refer to the guide I am putting together about buying used cars and also maintaining cars. Email me if you are interested, currently (2008 May) it is work in progress.

Silly read in the context of what I usually read, isn't it? But I wanted a break. And I'm learning stuff! :-) Even though it's outdated, some of the principles are very good. I'm making my kids read the last couple of chapters on maintenance and the tradeoff of buying new (or nearly) and used (or keeping the used). It's not nearly as fun as the radio show, but worth the read.

Charming and informative. Sometimes leaning a bit *too* informative, but their sense of humor balances nicely.
