John Haynes: 'The godfather of instruction manuals'

20 Aug, 2009 | SnippetsTdp

[John Haynes] is the man whose love of cars started him on the road to produce the first instruction manuals on how to repair and care for cars in the 1950s.

Haynes manuals are the most famous instruction manuals in the world, having sold 150 million copies worldwide and will mark their 50th anniversary in 2010.

To this day, the Haynes manual for a particular make of car is the last word on the subject.
