So how did we arrive at these best Porsche Boxster and Cayman books?

Our shortlisted books and those on our other Best Lists rank high in the ratings on various recognized and trusted review and rating platforms, search engines and websites, as well as on high-volume retailer stores across the Internet.

The list is updated on a regular basis to reflect prevailing trends, as well as to include hot newcomers on the usual suspects’ retail and review & rating websites.

As is the case with all of our shortlisted books and other merch, entries appear based not only on superior quality and value, but also on availability (see “Availability” FAQ below). 

For example, any given book may be of outstanding 5-star quality, but if it is next to impossible to obtain for a relatively reasonable market price, then there’s no way it can find its way onto our best-of shortlists.
