This may be dating myself, but when I was a kid, we had a VW microbus and my
dad bought that book. Being a basically geeky kid (~8) who read everything
in sight, I read that book from cover to cover, and even understood most of
it. The cartoons were hilarious! I think my dad may even still have it.
