Book News Annotation:
The popular magazine's editor in chief provides a handy reference to help readers decode a sales brochure, make sense of information downloaded from the Internet, unravel the latest technology detailed in a road test, and overcome other barriers to life with automobiles. The dictionary first appeared in abbreviated form as a series in the magazine during 1975 and 1976, and is here enlarged to over 1,300 definitions and 437 illustrations. There is no index or cross- referencing.
