I recently bought this book as a present for a friend and think that it is fantastic. It has all of the latest production and concept developments from the past year in one text! It gives real insight into both car design and the current automotive industry with stunning photos and informative write ups. The content is logically ordered and written in an accessible way. I think that the book is incredible value and will be of interest both as a reference text to industry people, and as a great book for the enthusiast. A brilliant present to give someone, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Given author Newberry's design responsibilities at world-famous consultancy firm Tom Walkinshaw Racing, I had hoped that this book would contain intelligent critiques of current car designs and trends. Instead, it is a collection of glossy manufacturer-supplied photos and relentlessly positive model descriptions that read like mildly reworked press releases from the factory headquarters. Perhaps Newberry's employer wouldn't let him offend any existing or potential clients but, if you are hoping for objective design analysis as opposed to a pretty summary of sales brochures, look elsewhere.

Finally a Design Yearbook for the highest Design objects on the market ! This book is beautifully laid out, showing a broad selection of concept cars from the leading auto manufacturers worldwide. The quality of the photography is high, showing both detail and general views well. Some models that did not reach prototyping appear as computer models (not always of the highest quality), which is a shame but also an obvious constraint of their being "concepts". The texts are interesting, covering strategy, marketing and aesthetic issues -but short- they definately leave the reader with questions unanswered. As a product designer, the book has served me as a reference for form and detail, and has come off the shelf many times since I bought it.

If one can pay over a million dollars for some paint on old canvas, the cost of this book is negligible. Since autos are as much sculpture as any bronze statue, this is a book to present a standard in automotive art. Definitely a winner for anyone's book collection. From examples of the printer's art to fine examples of photography, this is worth not buying that bottle of wine you were thinking of. Buy it! The only drawback is the number of mouthwatering concept cars that will never be on the market. Sob!!
