Got this for my daughter's boyfriend who is a mechanic and he really liked it.
For a non reader he seemed to really enjoy it.

I found this book interesting and informative. I got sucked into this book and kept having a hard time putting it down because it taught me stuff about vehicle history that I didn't know. Uncle John's Bathroom Reader books are the only non-fiction books I read and buy (and also reread). I like the format of these books because it changes subject almost page by page so you don't get bored. I like the "running feet" (this is what they call footnotes) because they are usually a different subject than what is on the page.

Did you know that if it wasn't for the discovery of gasoline we would have more advanced electric cars because there was electric cars before there was gas powered cars.

Enjoy

A Ton of Transportation Trivia! Feb. 10 2012
By Michael OConnor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In VROOM!, the Uncle John crew turn their eye on the world of transportation, offering up 464 pages of interesting, informative and occasionally odd information on cars, trucks, trains, planes and other motorized marvels. As with other BATHROOM READER books, VROOM! is a hoot.

Published in 2011, VROOM! follows the tried-and-true BR format of short blurbs, two-three page articles, longer pieces and multi-part articles. In terms of "motorized marvels," my main interest is airplanes. Having said that, I discovered many genuinely interesting pieces in VROOM! on cars, ships, choppers and so on. Among the contents were:

*articles on Evil Knievel and other daredevils;
*a multi-part history of the land speed record;
*a two-pager on the development of crop dusting;
*odd means of transportation like tuk-tuks, boda-bodas and jeepneys;
*transportation firsts;
*the development of hovercraft, icebreakers, etc.;
*the contemporary piracy scene;
*Indy 500 lore;
*fact/fiction in the TOP GUN movie;
*big, bigger and sinfully bigger yachts;
*drag racing legends;
*a history of the Orient Express;
*a four-parter on airships;
*James Bond cars; and,
*one of my favorites: funny one-liners from flight attendants.

In short, whatever your bent, VROOM! will supply you with hours of interesting, entertaining transportation history. Congrats, Uncle John, another winner! Recommended.
