No, but there's a 24K certified version for twice the price!

Have you ever thought about publishing this as an e-Book available through Google Play, App Store, and Kindle?

Enjoy!
Gawd almighty, please don't!

That is the worst review I have seen in my life. No real information about the book (apart from the fact that it is very awesome). It didn't even show a page with the fantastic pictures he keeps telling us about. Take a peek even on Amazon and you'll find better reviews and even sample pages of the books you're looking at. Two minutes of introduction before getting to the point in a 5 minute video! Jeez.

Hope the author didn't pay anything for that review, or he deserves his money back and heartfelt apologies Heck, I feel I deserve apologies for having watched some of it (couldn't sit through the whole thing on account of the cringing taking place).

Ill be honest, the book is short and sweet with emphasis on building and what the different setup items can accomplish. Some of them are opposite to what i have been taught since day one so interested to try things out after reading the book.

As a more intermediate racer im not sure i personally get the full value from this book but a novice racer who really has no idea about car setup, they should definitely have it.
I definitely took a few points from it that i now apply to my program so worthwhile for sure.

The book wont really make you faster as a driver and he says himself you have to be able to drive the car.
but it will make you more critical about car assembly and maintenance which helps with consistancy ect.

Ryan is also a standup guy. My original order never arrived, prob lost in mail system but he sent me a new one ems at his cost. Ems costing as much as he book aus => canada.
