Book recommendation:

We didn’t find a book dealing solely with how to use jumper cables, probably because it isn’t really that big of a deal that anyone would actually be capable of writing an entire book on such a small subject. However, we were able to localize a nice little guide dealing with a multitude of subjects related to – yes, you guessed it – car stuff. It’s called The Ride GuideWhat You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You! and we believe it is a good choice. Check it:
