Great content, poor delivery/product quality of the paperback edition
The content is really informative and through, but execution of the paperback is flawed in two pretty major ways:

- The binding is terrible, as noted by others here and on Amazon. The first one literally fell apart in my hands the first night of reading. To their credit, Autogeek sent another, but same issue. If you ware willing to 3-hole punch and put in a binder, recoverable. Otherwise a mess.

- The paperback has many many internet link references to products it talks about and other content. Since it is a paperback, of course you can't 'click' them. I can only assume this book was designed to be read on a CD/DVD or some other computer-readable format.

- You might think, as I did, must be on the Amazon Kindle version! But alas, no, if you read those reviews and download the sample you'll find the Kindle book is ONLY text, not even the pictures, and no links, so mostly useless. Maybe you can buy a PDF version somewhere that has both pics and links enabled?
ProsGood content
ConsPoorly executed, making it a challenge to extract that good content

As title says
Great book with a lot of good and complete information
ProsEverything
ConsMaybe experiences or examples of more products
CALIFORNIA
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.
Missouri City, Texas
Extremely informative
This is one of the better books Iâ€â"¢ve read. Mike goes into great detail with his explanations. Itâ€â"¢s one thing to understand a process but another thing to understand the science behind it! Iâ€â"¢ve read the book twice and still use it as a reference. This book will make you a better detailer.
ProsItâ?‚??"?s a book. If you can read, then you got this.
ConsItâ?‚??"?s a book. If you canâ?‚??"?t read, well there a lot of pretty pictures to look at.
