Just bought a fun book

Amazon.com: Tires And Passenger Vehicle Fuel Economy: Informing Consumers, Improving Performance (Special Report (National Research Council (U S) Transportation Research Board)) (9780309094214): Transportation Research Board: Books

Looking forward to getting it in the mail sometime soon. I'll share what I learn, of course

I always like to own physical copies of the books I enjoyed reading. I've read Hucho before, but I'm getting my own copy very soon.

Yeah, I'm borrowing hucho from darin at AMEC but I plan to buy it sometime so I can look at leisure.

Do the physical copies of SAE papers come presented decently?

I have no clue. All I ever looked at was the yearly books they make, with all the papers they judged were the best. Those were made out of very thin paper, but that probably have more to do with keeping the size of the books down than with anything else.
