It can not be argued that a diary is one of life's most simple, yet essential tools that gets us all through our day smoothly. However, they don't have a reputation for an interesting read- until now. With the Haynes 2009 Desk Diary, the classic cutaways and model descriptions will have you engrossed for hours, unlike that meeting that you are supposed to be scheduling in!
Haynes Publishing is used to enthusiastic reviews of its car, van and motorcycle manuals. It is, after all the world leader with over 150 million manuals sold to date. Following the overwhelmingly positive reaction over the last two years to the company diary, the 2009 diary is sure to be in great demand.
The format is the same as the time honoured Haynes manual, with week to view presentation on high quality paper. There are classic cutaway diagrams from the company archives along with appendices of useful automotive related data. The selection includes timeless classics such as the Renault 4 and the Triumph TR7, and each drawing is finely detailed, warrants careful examination and is complemented by a brief history of the model.
Each double page offers a week-to-view with the month, dates and days identified clearly. Edge-of-page markers aid quick reference to particular months and there is also a ribbon page marker.
Also included is a year planner for 2010, together with alphabetically labelled pages for inserting contact details. A page of conversion factors (Imperial to SI units and US volumes) precedes a table of UK mainland registration letters - just what you need when ordering spare parts or checking the age of a second hand car.
As with all the Haynes manuals, the hardback cover to the diary has a glossy finish so that greasy finger marks can be wiped off - making this diary equally useful at home on your desk or at your workbench.
The new Haynes Desk Diary, January to December 2009 is perfect for all car enthusiasts and would make an ideal Christmas present. It is available now from all good car accessory retailers or can be ordered from www.haynes.co.uk.
