Nader formed the Center for Auto Safety in Washington, D.C. in 1970 and in the same year produced his first Lemon Book consumer manual on automobiles. That first edition spurred legislation for auto safety (including state "lemon laws"); the second edition, noting these changes, was called "an excellent resource guide" by LJ 's reviewer ( LJ 1/1/81). This third edition has an introduction by Nader outlining new legislation since the second edition and offers advice on buying, driving, maintaining, and, when necessary, complaining about an automobile. A listing of state lemon laws is included. Despite new laws and increased consumer awareness, Nader sees the fight for auto safety as a continuing one: "There are still miles to go, lives to be saved, air to be cleaned, and lemons to be squeezed before we can say the auto has been tamed."-- Judy Quinn, "Library Journal"
