Millions follow Mike and Edd's collectable car adventures on Discovery Channel's Wheeler Dealer series, now in its ninth year and shown all around the world. Here's the book to accompany the series.
The Wheeler Dealer Know How! is written by Mike Brewer, cheeky chappie and TV's best-known car dealing expert. In a career spanning almost 30 years, Mike has seen and done everything when it comes to buying and selling cars, and having established a successful career as a television presenter, is eager to share his knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for cars.
Telling you all you need to know about buying, preparing and selling modern classic cars, this book guides you through the minefield that is the world of car dealing, and helps you avoid the pitfalls that await the unwary. Plus, with stories and anecdotes from Mike’s time in the trade, you'll gain a fascinating insight into the world of wheeler-dealing.
Packed full of information and tips, The Wheeler Dealer Know How will give you the confidence to buy the car of your dreams and avoid ending up with a lemon. You’ll find out how to prepare a car to expert standards – from cleaning, to repairs and improvements – and when the time comes to sell, Mike tells you how to get the best price and avoid being ripped-off.
There's no doubting the classic car buying wisdom contained within [this book] … Discovery's popular Wheeler Dealers has brought a great deal of fresh blood to the classic world. As such, Know How! is aimed squarely at the first-time classic buyer. In this role, it is perfect … taking a something-for-everyone approach, flagging up pitfalls and debunking a few myths. There are model-specific buyer's guide books out there for the truly committed that render Know How! a lightweight. However, as a way to turn a fleeting interest in classics into a deep and rewarding hobby, it's far more accessible. Give copies to your non-classic-owning mates and they'll understand you better.
This is a good little book and well worth the money … it really does exactly what it says on the front cover and gives you some real inside and useful information. Recommended.

It's bound like a Beano annual, and the cover looks quite cartoony, but don't let that fool you. The contents impart Mike's knowledge from a lifetime in the motor trade in the same style that's made him famous on the TV ... shot through with Mike's humour and easy style. It's not heavy going and if you start reading it you probably will carry on to the end. ... It's an enjoyable book which you can read through and then come back and refer to individual chapters as and when the moment takes you. But, beware, it can induce potentially wallet denting sessions on eBay. I found myself looking up Mk1 Escorts and Minis after reading it. Thoroughly recommended.

I bought this book being a major fan of wheely dealers and trading up and I love it, Mike really knows his onions when it comes to cars and I was not disappointed. His cockney charm really shines through in this thoughtful autobiographical muse, I can't wait to get into buying and selling motors now, perhaps one day I'll be as well known as the great man himself.
