A hemispherical head ("hemi-head") gives an efficient combustion chamber with minimal heat loss to the head, and allows for two large valves. Genat, Robert (2007). Hemi: The Ultimate American V-8. MBI Publishing. p. 13. ISBN 978-0-7603-2747-0. However, a hemi-head usually allows no more than two valves per cylinder due to the difficulty in arranging the valve gear for four valves at diverging angles, and these large valves are necessarily heavier than those in a multi-valve engine of similar valve area, as well as generally requiring more valve lift. The intake and exhaust valves lie on opposite sides of the chamber and necessitate a "cross-flow" head design.

I have owned this book for a while now...The more I look at it the more impressed I am. No, this is not a "buyers guide" with tons of specs and tables. It is is a very enjoyable read with awesome....really awesome...pics with just enough text to keep it all flowing together. No dead spots anywhere. Thoroughly entertaining. Hard to put down and take in only a little at a time. Let me say again awesome pics of rare and very pristine collector cars. I am buying other vintage car books from this fine gentleman. AAA+++ indeed.

To the "man" who gave it one star....ppllleeaase can't you see the forest for the trees? (obviously not) This book is for pleasure and general knowledge not a super detailed buying guide. Possibly one small text mistake and the book is a useless one star??? WOW! Hey dude are you perfect? Folks, at the price this book is selling for its a no-brainer steal if you like cars. Really! For what type of book it is give it an AAA+++.

This is the latest in a long line of very good automotive-related books from author Genat. The photos are top-notch and the text informative, if a little simplistic. The overview of the early and late hemi's origins at the beginning of the book is top notch. The chapters on the many Mopar bodystyles that featured the hemi option are also quite good. My only quibble is that the book often does not show the featured cars' engines in the make and model chapters.
However, if you're a Mopar enthusiast or a hemi nut, this book will "light your fire." Despite the minor quibbles above, it's a great book and I can heartily recommend it.

I got this hardcover for a price is unbelieveable and add to the frosting on the cake, it is a great book!
I just wish they show more details on the Hemi motor itself, they show a few of them which causes me to ponder how other parts work with certian parts in the motor, but did not show.
Love to see history from it's beginning all the way to it's end on 1971. Of course the Hemi goes on after wards in drag racing world and street customs.
it is worth having it in my mopar library.

Page after page of beautiful color photos of classic cars and Hemi engines. It was purchased to use for one of the door prizes we give out at our church "Cruise-In", and I will be pleased to give it to some happy classic car enthusiast!

I would recommend it to someone who was interested in this topic.

I have a friend who collects Muscle cars and this was the perfect gift. There are lots of great pictures, which brought back memories of when the cars rolled off the assembly line.
