If you are into reading and cars both, what could be a better treat than books about automobiles? The great thing is that these days you can get hardcover, paperback, or e-books, depending on your preference. And while you are at it, you might also want to check out some of the exciting used cars in Abu Dhabi. Here are some of our favorite books!
How Cars Work
If you are a newbie, this book by Tom Newton is a great light read for those who want to learn more. Since this is a book for novices, it understandably doesn’t have advanced material. Rather, it’s more of an illustrated guide about important auto components and how they work. The book uses simple language and line drawings to talk about the automotive system. Basically, it’s great if you are just starting out before you advance to more complex reading material.
Car: The Definitive Visual History of the Automobile
Even if you are a car enthusiast, chances are you don’t know the entire history of automobiles. That’s where this book by DK comes in. It begins with pioneering cars and early production-line vehicles, discussing the Ford Model T and Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, before moving on to the development that took place in the 1920s.
So, if you are interested in learning more about the history of automobiles, starting from the first prototypes to the cars we have today, this book is totally recommended. More interestingly, the book doesn’t just talk about the manufacturing of vehicles, but also the cultural backdrop against which different variants popped up and their impact on society.
Speed Read series
Another great read for newbies and those who don’t want to dedicate hours for reading are the titles in the Speed Read range which is produced by Motorbooks. The books in the series either focus on an iconic car model or a particular automotive segment. Right now, six titles are available, including ‘Speed Read F1: The Technology, Rules, History and Concepts Key to the Sport’ and ‘Speed Read Super Car: The History, Technology, and Design Behind the World’s Most Exciting Cars’.
These are all great for casual readers who want to build a solid foundation of knowledge about cars in a relatively short time.
