Lotus Elan

Is this book worth buying ?

Anybody got this ?

Anything we don't already know ?
Now days I assume it's all been said and if I can get one pearl of wisdom out of an Elan book I'm doing well.
( Other than Brian's book of course which provided several strings of pearls.... :) ).

Is it much different, better or worse than the Autobooks manual ?

I also have a two-volume copy of the official Lotus manual, of which the Autobooks one is a condensed version.

It is a condensed version of the workshop manual, so doesn't contain anything new, but is useful to have in the car as it's not a whopping great ring binder.

I have a much oil-stained ring binder version as well, but the two-volume copy is very nicely bound in hard cover. I ordered it a while back from a chap in Germany who prints them. :)

Even though this is not about an Elan, this book is worth buying :)
