Audel books have been around forever, but I could never find a revision, at least not of this really well-known book for my toolbox. I had an old copy, but it was really out of date. I'm recommending this new one to all the other guys in the shop!

It's great! It's small, durable, and easy to carry around. It has most all information you may need if you find yourself in a jam. I suggest this handy book to anyone, plus who can argue with the price?
