'Serious off road drivers will not want to be without this latest tome from 4x4 expert and former test pilot Tom Sheppard, whose recent Expedition Guide was such a milestone. Sheppard's latest work, Off-roader Driving is ... typically thorough ... .

From the Publisher:

OFF-ROADER DRIVING, Edn 1.2 - this compendium is aimed at all users, from professionals in remote areas to those with their first 4x4 bought mainly as a domestic work-horse. It has an expedition basics section that includes invaluable information on tyres, fuels, oils, loading - now updated with the 2005 Supplement - and water filtration. An incisive overview of the multiplicity of four-wheel drive systems and the make-up of a 4x4 is now, with the 2005 Peripherals Update Supplement, further complemented by an unusually straight-talking overview of the new generation of 'soft-roaders', their brand-name confusing 'new' 4x4 systems and the nadir of ergonomic design to which some of them have slipped, at the users' expense.
