"Kevin A. Wilson . . . has done a fine job of selecting pieces that are not only significant in terms of automotive history but also timeless in their observations of human behavior." —The New York Times, December 12, 2010

Leon Mandel's work offered an incisive behind-the-scenes look into the lives of our heroes, an insightful examination of the toys that bring us joy, and critical scrutiny of an industry rife with scoundrels and hooligans. The Jaundiced Eye is a rich compilation of stories, profiles, and select book chapters that car enthusiasts, automotive historians, and lovers of the written word have been denied for too long.

“Beyond the wit, charm and passion in Leon Mandel’s writing was always another crucial element: truth. And I’ve always said, you gotta love a guy who tells it like it is. This collection is proof positive of that.” —Bob Lutz, GM Vice Chairman

“Talk about inspiring; twenty profanity-laced minutes in his office and I chucked a high-paying engineering job to follow him in a life of journalistic poverty. And I’d do it again.” —Patrick Bedard, Formerly Car & Driver

"Anyone whose major decision in life was whether to become a Rabbi or a race car driver has the right priorities." —Tom Cotter, Author of Cobra in the Barn

"Leon Mandel, a writer whose subject happens to be cars, always rewards anyone interested in either writing or cars."—Denise McCluggage
