Mo­tor­books’ Speed Read Se­ries: Fer­rari and Mus­tang

160 pages | $20 ea.

When it comes to ref­er­ence ma­te­rial for ar­ti­cle re­search or just plea­sure read­ing, Mo­tor­books is a fa­vorite among the DCX staff. No­body has a larger li­brary of au­to­mo­tive-re­lated ti­tles. From tech­ni­cal ref­er­ences, his­tor­i­cal chron­i­cles, mem­oirs, and bi­ogra­phies of in­dus­try lu­mi­nar­ies to the largest se­lec­tion of car cul­ture, au­to­mo­bilia, and cof­fee-table books— you want it, they got it. One of the pub­lisher’s new­est is the Speed Read se­ries; as the name im­plies, these books are for­mat­ted to be fast-paced and fun over­views, bal­anc­ing tech data with his­tor­i­cal info and cul­tural con­text. We checked out the Mus­tang and Fer­rari edi­tions, and im­me­di­ately rec­og­nized some com­mon virtues de­spite sub­ject dif­fer­ence. All the ma­te­rial is or­ga­nized in tidy sec­tions with ap­proach­able lan­guage and a fun feel, em­pha­sized by the stylish orig­i­nal art­work that il­lus­trates each ti­tle in the se­ries. Each book com­prises 160 pages, and be­cause the books use a sim­i­lar for­mat, it be­comes eas­ier to find the info you’re look­ing for with each suc­ces­sive ti­tle. They serve as great in­tro­duc­tions to makes and mar­ques for new en­thu­si­asts, and use­ful and en­ter­tain­ing pick-up books for the more ex­pe­ri­enced afi­ciona­dos.
