KIRKUS REVIEW

A staid, pedantic analysis of the development of the American automobile, this book may intrigue the young automobile expert, but makes pretty dull reading for those outside the quit. The author touches upon technical changes from the early steam cars through the invention of the gasoline engine, intricate types of mechanized carriages and finally to Henry Ford, Durant and Chrysler who put automobiles within public reach. Some jokes, promotion methods, and songs are included to show the effect of the automobile on public life, but this is on the whole dull.
