Great book, lots of valuable info
For someone who is just getting into detailing I've found this book to be as valuable if not more than any tool you can buy. It is packed with good information and how to's. I read it almost every night and am amazed at Mike's knowledge of the business. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve on their work.

My 2nd one
My wife throw my 1st signed copy away by mistake so I'm having to order a 2nd one :-( But it's good enough to have to re-buy. If you new to detailing buy this book and get all your questions answered in detail with plenty of photos.

Great Book BUT
Great book loaded with a lot of info But it fell apart and now I have a bunch of loose pages floating around the garage. I will have to hunt down the hole punch and put the pages into a binder.

a Good read with lots of pics.
Books go a load of info with a lot of pictures. I do like the bit of history and detail info about cards and paint that's in the book. Unfortunately after reading half way through the first few pages started to fall out of the spine of the book. But otherwise I think it's worth it. I think you can probably find the info on this site or on the forum but nothing beats having the info in your hand.

I thought i knew everything about detailing, but this book has taught me a lot! I'd be prepared to pay double the listed price for this book! everyone should have one! Getting it personally signed too is a nice touch!

Hey Mike, I attended boot camp a few months ago and learned a lot from those two days of hands-on experience. It was a great honor to receive this book autographed by you. A big plus is the way every step of this book is explained in a way I can read it and experience my self with those great tips and techniques! I will for sure sign up for next detail boot camp !

Great book for everyone, particularly for the beginner. I read the whole book, and use it as a reference when needed. The forum is great but the pictures in the book are extremely helpful as well. Highly recommended for anyone who is into detailing at any level.

All I wanted to know about finish restoration, but was afraid to ask...
This book has given me the mental tools to tackle the paint system restoration on my 2003 Anniversary Red Metallic Corvette. Well done to Mike Phillips for putting all the eggs in one basket!

The Art of Detailing
Recently purchased and used a Porter Cable polisher for the first time. Without the book, would have found it difficult to use the tool properly. So yes, the book was well worth the expense as it was very detailed and informative.

Great for all
As a person new to machine polishing, this book is a MUST have. I read the forum, but having it at my finger tips is truly awesome. Mike takes you step by step w/detailed photos through the entire process. Thank you so much for putting this book together!!!

Show Car Shine
Just received Mike Phillips' new book. WOW! 120+ glossy pages with pictures on almost every page. If you have been reading the AG Forum, you may see some familiar photos and alot more. Mike's book would make a great gift (don't forget the signed copy). Way too much to digest in one sitting. I jump around reading different sections and find I can't put it down. You NEED this. THANKS Mike and AG for putting this together.

Absolutely Awesome Book!
As a detailer, trainer, and instructional designer for over a dozen years, I can tell you that this is an awesome piece of material. It could be used as the text book for detailing. The great thing about this is that anyone on any level of detailing will enjoy it and get something out of it. For beginners it will put you on the path to become a great detailer with some great processes learned. For the advanced detailer you will learn how you may have strayed from correct processes or perhaps even pick up a few you didn't learn along the way. It is an outstanding piece of literature which will educate and entertain you from cover to cover.
