This book is designed for water-cooled Volkswagen enthusiasts. My main goal is to spread my love for the Volkswagen hobby to anyone that wants to learn. For me, it's been a lifetime love affair and I am lucky to say that I have turned what I love doing into a career, and it's awesome. I hope this book will help you to participate in a hobby that has been one of the most fulfilling parts of my life. I've also been lucky to surround myself with family and friends who love VWs too. I've learned invaluable skills. I get to shape and create things with my hands and feel proud when someone else recognizes my hard work. I get to go to several car shows a year and display my car (the culmination of my hard work), but I also get to create some of my favorite memories with some of the best people. The book is written roughly as a blueprint that I could have handed to 14 year old me to prevent a lot of the mistakes I made (or that others I know made) along the way. I hope any Volkswagen enthusiast will be able to take something of value away from reading this, but it's primarily directed at newcomers. If you are a brand new or relatively new Volkswagen enthusiast, my goal is to inform and educate you as much as possible so that you can get where you want to go as quickly as possible. Also, I want to arm you with knowledge that will hopefully help to minimize destruction (to your car, your budget or yourself). I want you to be able to enjoy your car and the VW community (and maybe become obsessed - it happens a lot) without wrecking your finances, personal relationships or putting yourself in harm's way. With all of that said, thanks again for reading and I hope you enjoy it.

In June 2005 four US Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al-Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less than twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs was alive. This is the story of team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing. Blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing, Luttrell endured four desperate days fighting the al-Qaeda assassins sent to kill him, before finding unlikely sanctuary with a Pashtun tribe who risked everything to protect him from the circling Taliban killers.

From viral Instagram sensation, lifestyle photographer, and mommy blogger Laura Izumikawa (@LauraIz) comes Naptime with Joey, a ridiculously delightful photo book of her now internet-famous daughter dressed up in various pop culture costumes—a perfect gift for new parents everywhere. Lights, Camera…Nap! Joey Marie wears many hats (or, rather, wigs): she’s dressed up as Inigo Montoya, Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Pikachu, Anna Wintour, Moana, and Barb from Stranger Things. She’s taken trips to Hawaii, baked croissants, and blasted off to the moon as an astronaut (at least, in her dreams). She’s held occupations such as pizza chef, aerobics instructor, and handy-dandy-fixer-upper (figuratively, of course). She’s inspired a parenting blog, been the face of her mom Laura Izumikawa’s Instagram account—and for the first time, she’s taken the leap from the ranks of internet-baby-snoredom to the pages of a book. Naptime with Joey is chockablock full of over a hundred deliciously adorable photos of Joey dressed up as various pop culture characters, movie stars, musicians, vacationers, and holiday-goers, making this the most fun, festive, and downright delightful gift under the sun!
