My only problem with My First Car are the number of typos throughout the book. In story after story, the wrong word is used, or a word is missing. An example is Peter Brock's bio on page 78, where it says "he remains involved in many author motorsport and automotive design enterprises." Obviously the word should be other, not author. How did a proofreader or editor not pick up on this and the many other errors like it? It made for a distracting read for me, but others might never notice.
Otherwise, a very good book with lots of neat old photos of vintage cars.
