Fantastic information in a bad package.
Everything I wanted in content. Great information, easy to digest.

Binding of the book is a bad as it gets. It fell apart during my first reading. Every page turned, equals a page that came loose. Too bad given the quality of the cover, illustrations and pictures.

I'll probably have to three hole punch it and stick it in a binder.
ProsContains all the information I was looking for. Well explained, well illustrated. The information is organized in a cogent, thoughtful manner.
ConsThe binding of the book is as bad as it gets. For this reason I recommend it with some very strong reservations.

Extremely informative
This is one of the better books I’ve read. Mike goes into great detail with his explanations. It’s one thing to understand a process but another thing to understand the science behind it! I’ve read the book twice and still use it as a reference. This book will make you a better detailer.
ProsIt’s a book. If you can read, then you got this.
ConsIt’s a book. If you can’t read, well there a lot of pretty pictures to look at.

Lots of tips and tricks on this book, very easy to pleasing to go through. Mike Phillips seems like a professional and offers a ton of tips on car care from as simple as washing a car properly to machine polishing. Got this with my polisher, two thumbs up to Mike for offering this to us. He seems very passionate about detailing.
