Psst, did you know that a filthy car could be a disaster for your love life?

My Review:

This has to be the most comprehensive and usable how-to book ever written. The author has created a very readable and fun book covering every home car detailing aspect.

The book is enjoyable with fun little bits that make you smile as you learn how to take care of your car. The detail in the book is unprecedented. Every single time the author starts a new section he keeps the detail going.

You cannot go wrong if you just follow the process step by step. It is smart and funny and easy to read. The step-by-step instructions can be followed by anyone. There is a great chapter for each part of car detailing. If you need just one for one can flip to that.

A truly brilliant book! If you own a car, you must buy this book. If you are thinking of buying a car, buy this book first. There cannot be a car owner who doesn't need to have this book at the ready. Cannot recommend this book enough.

My Rating: 5++ stars
