Summary: If you own an injected car, you NEED to read this. If you
own a carb car, you NEED to read this. The book covers all
Bosch-based Jetronic and Montronic injections. The chapters
are beautifully laid out, alternating on theory and service.
Consider this book educational costs in the budget, as it
will take you to school.

Summary: Actually Bosch has a complete series of these < 100 page
pamphlets. Very nicely done. Difficult to tell who the
audience is meant to be, as it begins with technical
description of the Otto-cycle ("ok boys and girls, let's
start at the root of this thing"). Nicely done, though,
and different than the Bentley Motronic book, as a more
detailed discussion of the "ying-yang, you don't get something
for nothing" engine management issues and comparisons.
I had to read this two or three times to digest the
contents at some reasonable level. Note, Bosch has similar
writings (also for about $13 on everything from transistor
ignitions to ABS).
