5.0 out of 5 stars A classic reborn! Jan. 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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 I had an old copy, but it was really out of date.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!
