Cool Mavericks

If you want the most compelling, enthralling guide to the fascinating history of automotive air-conditioning, you will want to pre-order Cool Mavericks, the upcoming book produced in partnership with VASA that explores how air-conditioning became a standard feature in every new car on sale today.

The product of many years’ research and interviews with pioneers in the field of automotive air-conditioning on three continents, Cool Mavericks is the story of the colourful characters who leapt into the unknown and made air-conditioning everything on wheels a highly successful and quite accidental industry.

It has more than 600 pages of facts, figures, photos, diagrams, and anecdotes that will keep you enthralled from start to finish.

Cool Mavericks is still in the final stages of production with the aim of an official release in the second quarter of 2024. However, due to the uncertainties of the publishing industry, we cannot yet guarantee an exact on-sale date.

By pre-ordering Cool Mavericks, you will help fund the last steps of this ambitious project and ensure its success. If for some reason the book doesn’t get printed, VASA will refund your money in full.
