Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Despite the many advances women have made since the internal combustion engine was invented, there is still one widely held belief that wont seem to go away: that when it comes to cars, women should just leave it to the men. In Essential Car Care for Women, ESPN NASCAR pit reporter Jamie Little and Discovery Channel “Turbo Expert” Danielle McCormick team up to dispel this myth once and for all—and to offer the indispensable, hard-won advice women need to buy, sell, and care for their cars with confidence.

With this handy guide, women will learn how to save themselves money by performing basic—but essential—maintenance tasks on their own. Little and McCormick explain what an alternator, regulator, distributor, and timing belt are; how to change a tire, recharge a flat battery, check the oil, and assess tire pressure; what to do when a car breaks down or when an accident occurs; how to buy a car without being taken advantage of; and more. Straightforward and easy to follow—and including simple step-by-step diagrams and pictures to help along the way—Essential Car Care for Women is the ultimate handbook to everything a woman should know about her set of wheels.

About the Author

Jamie Little is the NASCAR pit reporter for ESPN/ABC. She also covers the Indy Racing Series (including the Indy 500) and the X Games on a limited basis. She is passionate about motorsports and is well known on the NASCAR, Indy, and motocross scenes. She also hosts a variety of TV and live events, and has been featured in a number of magazines, as well as in a PlayStation video game.

Danielle McCormick decided to teach herself how to fix her car after wasting thousands of pounds on a self-inflicted blown head gasket. She then decided to tell other women just how easy car maintenance can be, so she wrote the original UK version of this book, Essential Car Care for Girls—and a phenomenon was born.
