The Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide by engineer turned mechanic Patrice Banks - any interest?

Dear Larry,

Many people don't know what the inside of their car looks like, and others don't even know how to prop up the hood. Even engineers and car fans can have gaps in their knowledge about their vehicles - professional engineer Patrice Banks used to avoid taking her car to the mechanic because she always felt she was getting ripped off. Not knowing the basics about your car - what that light on the dashboard is, or when (and how) your oil needs to be changed - can easily lead to being stuck on the side of the road or getting a bad feeling from your mechanic who says you need a new flux capacitor.

THe Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide<> (Touchstone Original/September 19, 2017/$19.99), by engineer turned certified mechanic Patrice Banks, is the answer. This do-it-herself guide to auto maintenance is filled with easy-to-follow illustrations and instructions, great tips, and lifesaving rules of thumb for the auto repair shop or any roadside emergency. THe Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide will take away the confusion and mystery surrounding cars to teach women (or anyone) what they need to know about how their cars work, and what they need to do to keep them running smoothly.

Patrice Banks was once like many: a self-professed "auto airhead" who was clueless about car maintenance, yet convinced that sometimes mechanics were taking advantage of her. Now she's an auto pro devoted to empowering women to learn basic car repairs and knowing what to do in an emergency.

Would you be interested in receiving an advance copy of THE GIRLS AUTO CLINIC GLOVE BOX GUIDE for possible review/feature/interview coverage? If so, please forward your address and I'll get a copy of the book to your attention as soon as it is available.
