*Recommended by Joe Sherlock.  His book reviews for 2016 can be found here.

Other books recommended by him that I've read this year are:

Car Crazy: The Battle for Supremacy between Ford and Olds and the Dawn of the Automobile Age by G. Wayne Miller (a copy of which was gifted to me by Jesse—Thanks again!).

Car Wars: The Rise, the Fall, and the Resurgence of the Electric Car by John J. Fialka.

Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen by Mary Norris (actually reviewed in 2015, but I didn't get around to reading it until this year).

Also on his recommendation I purchased:

Prestige, Status and Works of Art: Selling The Luxury Car 1888-1942 by Thomas Solley.

The Man Who Saved The V-8 by Chase Morsey, Jr. (bought from Autobooks-Aerobooks).
