4.0 étoiles sur 5 Useful, but lacking in some important areas 7 juillet 2014
Par Irfan A. Alvi - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a useful book overall, and contains a lot of information, but there are three significant areas where it could be better:

- While there are many photos of components, there's a lack of diagrams illustrating the layout of suspension systems so that the reader can see how the components fit and work together. Related to this, the author throws out a lot of terminology without definitions or illustrations of the terms.

- There's not much specific guidance on how to choose suspension components (adjustability of shocks, spring rates, etc.) for a given car and application.

- The discussion of tires seem rather outdated, and doesn't reflect the modern classification of tires into categories of high-end street tires, DOT R-compound street tires, semi-slick tires, and slicks, with their associated characteristics and applications.

Bottom line is that I do recommend this book, but it can't be considered a self-contained resource even at an introductory level, and definitely look elsewhere to learn about tires.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Suspension & Handling Book I've Ever Read 3 août 2014
Par BVC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'mma retired mechanical engineer and former racer. This is the very best book I've ever read on suspension and handling. It gave me insights that my ME curriculum didn't And it gives almost any level of detail one could want - from brief review to basic understanding to semi-expert. This is a must read for any serious or not so serious racer, pit crews, and mechanics. Highest possible recommendation.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great semi-basic Information 2 janvier 2014
Par Dubso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Overall really good book. A bit repetitive sometimes, but nonetheless great! Very good info on all on title of book. Does not get to crazy or hard to read. Very good for someone trying to learn the basics and go from there with more detailed books perhaps. Has all the basics covered. Heavy focus on tires and their set up.

Very pleased
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Long time race engineer and racer, Don Alexander, exposes the quick and dirty of suspension technology in an easy to read volume 24 avril 2015
Par Jean Genibrel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Don has again penned a noteworthy book on applied suspension technology. Where other authors have tried to relay the information contained in "High Performance Handling" in a complicated manner better associated with engineering texts, Don Alexander has delivered the basics (and it's all basics) in a simple, easy to read, step by step expose.

Don has become the go to author on several fronts. Alexander had given the urge to begin writing when I purchased Don's first book, Published by Steve Smith Autosports, at the old Reath Speed shop in Long Beach California. The experience set me on the path of author, photographer, publisher and editor. Readers will not find and "speed secrets" because Don knows that there is no such thing as secrets. Secrets are just what you do no know. I have the ultimate confidence that anyone who purchases his books will learn the best of auto racing and High Performance
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Only useful if you don't know anything about a car's suspension 3 août 2015

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The information is too basic to be of any use to me. You'll find this book useful, only if you do not know anything about automobile suspension at all. It tells you how springs, shock absorbers and sway bars work.
