Bert Youell, PRO Detailer Magazine: “Having run PVD – the UK trade association for detailers – since 2012 and edited PRO Detailer Magazine since 2015, I wanted to put together a book that brought professional detailing techniques to the home enthusiast, allowing normal people to look after their own cars using the techniques of the professionals.
“With so much unaudited information available online, we were keen to put something together that is both authoritative and unbiased, while retaining the accessibility and fun-factor of what has come before. It’s been three years in the making and much more involved than I first thought, but finally we have everything you need to know about detailing in a handy pocket guide stuffed with photos and tips that anyone can use.”
