Initially I was taken aback by it's rather diminutive size, however this gave way to delight, as I discovered a virtual cornucopia of concentrated and valuable information within. Being an amateur restorer myself, and completely aware of the trials & tribulations I went through in finding a suitable project vehicle, I was quite impressed to see a "hit list" of things to look-out for in buying a Citroen DS. This information alone is worth it's weight in gold, to say nothing of troubles saved in making an uninformed purchase of a lemon! (No pun intended). The book includes superb detail on all the different models and variants, along with information on the "rare gems" that collectors drool over. Certainly excellent reading and a must-have for anyone looking to buy one of these magical pieces of history. Citroen simply must have had and extra-terrestrial on the design team, judging from the total break with convention on this 20th century French icon.
