|Barnetts was designed really as a reference manual for professional mechanics, and is written assuming a much higher level of initial competence.
Zinn's book is great for people who are just learning, or need to do basic repairs, but it doesn't say anything that a professional mechanic doesn't already know.
|so, Barnett's is elitist, huh? :-) nm||DougSloan|
