A Lighter Look at Auto History

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device. Multi-touch books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device. Books with interactive features may work best on an iOS device. iBooks on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.


A light-hearted look at automotive history, with Foreword written by industry giant, Bob Lutz: 

“Alan McPhee and David Lamb have digitized the information and created an enhanced digital book, where virtually anyone who enjoys the history of automobiles has it at their finger tips.
This history isn’t dull, dry or dusty.  It is full of fascinating events, successes, failures and remarkable people whose ingenuity and creativity have given freedom, fun and delight to millions already and millions more to come."

Do you know how Audi got its name; what racing great was known as 'The Flying Mantuan' or when the first parking meter was installed? It’s a fun and engaging read for all ages. Over 450 images, new and old video and interactive elements throughout, combine to make this an engaging read even if you’re not a car nut or historian.

A portion of the net proceeds will be donated to the National Automotive History Collection, which is housed within the Detroit Public Library. Help us, help them.

Almost 200 pages of pure entertainment, part Trivial Pursuit©, part Jeopardy©, little known facts, off-beat questions, notable feats and defeats.

This is a must for any car nut.
Everything you needed (or didn't think you needed) to know about the world of cars.
Well written full of essential and useless information!
Had a blast reading it and will now be my bible for auto trivia.


I was quite impressed. Thought it'd be rather dry, but it is, as they claim, a light hearted review. Would recommend it to others.


Highly entertaining view of automotive history. Most impressed by the clarity of the color photography on the iPad. A full list of auto museums would be a nice addition.
