Authors of Enthusiasm

The Authors of Enthusiasm Committee maintains a list of books that are briefly reviewed and should be of interest to MBCA members. Many of the books concern Mercedes-Benz automobiles specifically and some of the books address more general aspects, such as car buying, maintenance, and ownership. Some of the books are authored or edited by MBCA members, past and present. Most of these books are available on Amazon, or by third-party sellers.
