Stuck for a Fathers day present - Sunday 17th June - wink, wink!? This has got to be the best present any "baby boomer" could ever wish for. Cheap at half price....and surely an Antiques Roadshow star buy for the future.

This "Haynes Manual" is an inventive, informative and entertaining guide to the world's foremost rescue organisation. Featuring cutaway drawings, detailed diagrams, colour illustrations and photographs, it provides the ultimate insight into the secrets of the fabulous International Rescue team, including in-depth examinations of the Thunderbirds craft and other vehicles. Intended for International Rescue field agents, this "Haynes Manual" includes an introduction by Jeff Tracy and operational procedures for agents' missions.

I find it interesting that Haynes have diversified into these "joke" DIY manuals, for fictional SF devices (have they done the Tardis yet?), classic machines (Lancaster etc), or even for understanding members of the opposite sex! As their core product was always for DIY car maintenance and repair, which is by inference a declining market, it would appear that is outside of most peoples interest/ability now. Does that say more about the increasing complexity of cars and their systems, or about the declining understanding of anything technical and for the default solution to be either to pay someone else to carry out the work needed or simply discard and buy new? Seems to conflict somewhat with the holy grail of recycling!
As to this deal, seems to be rather a lot to spend on a "joke", so cold for me. Can't see the joke? Frankly no, I can't!
