“The Secondhand Car Owner,” by Noel D Green and R Barnard Way (Wells Gardner, Dorton & Co Ltd, Redhill, Surrey. 144 pages, 6s.)
At first you will, as an experienced motorist, turn up your nose. Then you will warm to the authors’ humour in the opening paragraphs. Finally, if you decide that you know most of the things this book sets out to tell, few of you will deny that somewhere in it there is something you did not know or which it is worth having clearly explained. In our case it concerned the car’s “electrickery.” Anyway, this book is intended for those about to embark on their motoring careers and, if superficial in places, it is good value, covering much ground in the most simple language.
