Last week I purchased a book which I have to admit my husband saw first. I could not believe the price for a new hardback book.
RRP price £22.99 ONLY £6.00. This was in the shop called "The Works" I know they are all over the country so everyone should be able to source it one way or another. EBay price is £20.99, Amazon for used ones £10.85.

Back cover

Guys on the site (UK not sure about US) Haynes books are well known for car manuals.

Because a well-looked after record is a happy record.

British publishers Haynes have released a new book in their storied Owners Manual series dedicated to vinyl records, turntables and audio kit.

Founder John Haynes launched the books in 1960 with a guide aimed at general consumers detailing how to build an Austin 7 Special engine.

“Based on the stripdown and rebuild of the project vehicle and with extensive use of step-by-step photographs – a process that has not changed to this day,” says the company.

This How To Get The Best From Your Vinyl Records and Kit instalment, written by Patrick Fuller and Matt Anniss, is aimed at the seasoned turntablist and novice collector alike.

Its 192 pages include sections on the history of turntable, the anatomy of a turntable, how to set-up your audio system, how vinyl ‘works’, the ins-and-outs of record collecting and what to look for when digging, interviews with “vinyl enthusiasts” like Gilles Peterson and DJ Jazzy Jeff, a “step-by-step guide to DJ technique”, and an A-Z guide of the world’s best selling singles, EPs and albums.

It is packed full of advice and loads of photos, so much help loads of things.

Here's a link for Amazon (US). They seem to have used copies for $19.70, which isn't bad. £15.21, Siri informs me.

I feel sure there will be some other deals around that could be even better, but UK members may have "The Works" shop nearby hopefully then they can get a new one for £6.00

I know "The Works" are also on the web so maybe check that out and the cost of the postage to check if it works out any cheaper.

It is an excellent book.
