Tracing the history of the automobile, from the first prototypes to the super cars of today, Car covers the technological developments and manufacture of cars, the cultural backdrop against which the various models arose, and the enduring impact the car has had on society as an object of curiosity, symbol of luxury, and item of necessity. 
The most lavishly illustrated treatment of the subject on the market, featuring the most noteworthy cars of each decade in beautifully photographed catalogs, Car is truly an international view of the automobile through time, with histories of the men and machines that created brands which are now household names.

  •     Beautiful book, and everything you need to know about the history of cars with stunning photos. Perfect gift for a car enthusiast.
  •     I am not the car enthusiast; my husband is. I can't evaluate the product from his perspective. However I found the book to be full of pictures and excellent photography. I enjoyed browsing it. It arrived with a torn cover but that was rectified as soon as I contacted Amazon. A complete new book was sent. I considered it a great gift; something he would not have bought for himself.
  •     Bought one for my gear head father who collects cars and my husband had to have one too! Great book, nice pics, and perfect for the coffee table!
  •     I purchased this as a gift for my grandfather, who loves classic cars. The book seems like a nice balance of pictures and text. You can enjoy it as a flip-through coffee table book, or as a way to get more information.
  •     Enjoyed reading this book. Lots of pictures and historical information.
  •     My search goes on for the one about every car that was built in the U.S..All early start-ups, Such as "Chandler,Moon,Hartford, etc This is good as the History of the...
  •     My husband and I fell in love with DK (especially the Smithsonian line) during a trip to the Smithsonian museums.
  •     This book has inaccurate and outright fabricated information! I first noticed it when a mustang was listed as a wrong model year with a completely made up engine displacement.
  •     Very timely shipping and as represented.
  •     Great history, with excellent graphics
  •     This was actually a gift for my three year old daughter and my husband for Christmas! My daughter and husband are both obsessed with cars. This has been one of the best car books I he looked through- it is a complete history! Both have spent hours looking and reading about all the cars. I like how the book is separated by decade!
  •     Really cool book it arrived in perfect conditions
  •     My grandson is so into cars he loves this.
  •     My son loves cars so I got this book for him. He loves it. All the photos through the years are cool for him to check out and the mini write-ups about each car's history are fun for dad. If you're a car lover don't miss this one.
  •     I bought this is a Christmas present for a relative who fixes up and sells cars. It's printed on nice, heavy, glossy paper. The book is divided into sections starting with early cars (through 1920), and then with a section for each decade thereafter. AT the beginning of each section is a double page with small pictures of representative cars from that decade, each labelled, and then closer looks at cars from that decade. It's well done. There are descriptions of the workings of an internal combustion engine, but they are not too technical. This book is very nice for anyone who likes cars, or, really, for someone who enjoys looking at the progression of something which is really central to our lives today.
  •     I bought this book for my teenage grandson for Christmas. The perfect gift. His dad buys and sells classic cars and he thinks it is great too.
  •     I loved this book! Thanks...
  •     Great product. Exactly as described. Would recommend to friends. Would buy again.
