Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
MSNBC.com, July 25, 2006

“Auto buffs should pick up Richard Newton’s Ultimate Garage Handbook."

Street Commodores (AUS), June 2006

“This book will do two things: make you drool with envy and put your bank balance in serious jeopardy. More than most books we’ve reviewed, Ultimate Garage Handbook betrays its American origins and idiosyncrasies throughout, but you should consider it a great source of inspiration for your own garage or workshop project.

“Still, the best reason to buy this book is just for sheer inspiration. Whether you’re just looking to clean up the space you’ve already got or you’re building a new house and want to get your garage workshop needs sorted before the first brick is laid, this book will fill in all the blank spots you’d normally forget.

“We’d recommend this book to anybody who spends more time in their garage than with their wife or girlfriend, or single guys that wish to die happy but alone.”

Cruzin' Magazine, March/April 2006 (circ. unavailable)
"A how-to manual to accompany the elegant Ultimate Garages by Phil Berg that came out two years ago. Many garages in the book seem beyond the average guy's pocketbook, but this new handbook offers advice on how to make your old garage, or the new one you're building in your head, look like a million bucks. But most important, the information here will make it a practical garage. Even if you're satisfied with your workspace and don't want to move anything because it's been in place for 20 years, this book could make you rethink things."
