VW Golf

Golfology Description

Comprehensive model history, heavily illustrated with major photo shoots and detail pictures, make this the complete guide to the five Golf generations. With all models, including Golf spin-offs, assessed, enthusiast-driving opinions shared, and marketing policy discussed, this book is a unique hot hatchback Golfology!

The Author Richard Copping has been a follower of the Volkswagen marque since acquiring his first car, a Beetle, in 1977. Although still an ardent fan of VW's air-cooled heritage, in recent years he has succumbed like so many to the charms of Europe's best selling hatch, adding the Golf to the portfolio of vehicles he writes about. His student days spent learning the craft of the historian has ensured a lively, authoritative style to his work, and genuine empathy with the spirit of the age he is writing about.
