Bosch Automotive Handbook - 8th Edition

All about automotive engineering in a pocketbook

Robert Bosch GmbH published the first incarnation of the Automotive Handbook in 1932. The original preface to this edition introduced the book as follows: "These 'Technical Tables' are an attempt to give users of our products a small, handy collection of the interesting formulas, values, and figures - drawn mainly from automotive technology -that are otherwise scattered across various magazines." Three years later, the "Technical Tables" were renamed the "Automotive Handbook."

Over seventy-five years later, the Bosch Automotive Handbook is now an indispensable reference source of precise information on the subject of automotive technology. This brand-new 8th edition is revised and extended throughout.
