Good Car DIY book?

My friends birthday is coming up. He has always talked about how he would like to be able to fix stuff in his car. I decided to get him a good DIY book about cars. Unfortunately I cannot find one. Does any one know of one?

Thank you in advance.

Haynes manuals are great, but you must always read them carefully, and with this translation guide to hand.
I like their underwear.
lol - I love the translation guide - I also use a list of handy expletives! ;-)

Why not pay to have him enrol at a night school for car mechanics? That way, what he learns will really stay with him as well as building up useful contacts for later projects...? I hope he gets you a large beer! Happy Birthday to him for when it comes!
I'd agree with rick above. find out more on they're website.

Haynes manuals are the standard in the UK
I'd have to agree, Haynes have manuals for nearly everything mechanical, every time I change my car I get the manual for it.

Most car auto parts stores have manuals. I believe Walmart also has a good selection. Where ever you find car parts you will usually find manual companies putting their stuff up for sale. I suppose some are better than others but I have had success with a number of different ones. It seams they all mostly take you in the same direction.
