FWIW, of the references I've read there are none that didn't have a few errors I eventually found as I learned more. John Olson of SL Market Letter fame is certainly one of the serious SL gurus, but even his book has a few internal inconsistencies here and there. As a physician, I'm accustomed to evaluating anything I read critically, and expecting that no single source will be totally comprehensive, totally accurate, or totally unbiased. That said, any of the authors I've found certainly know more than I do, and I still would suggest building a small MB library as a way to educate oneself on these cars.
One of the great physicians of all time, Sir William Osler, addressing a graduating class of physicians: "Gentlemen, I regret to have to tell you that one half of what we have taught you is in error. Furthermore, we cannot tell you which half it is."
