This is an excellent history of the automobile. Originally written in German, it gives a very non-nationalisitc view of the evolution of the automobile. It does an excellent job of citing the smaller, less famous makers that influenced the industry with unique or early adoption of technology. The book gives a very concise history of he technical changes, including many photograhs and diagrams. An excellent glossary also helps explain industry terms to those unaccustomed to the industry.
