Quattro Books

Brought in the two books that I have that are dedicated to the Audi 
Quattro ... gues the Lewandowski book would have qualified there too.  
There are some common themes between the two, as one might expect. 
Here is the publisher and table of contents information for each ...

The Walton book has a chapter dedicated to the history of Audi, which
is missing from the book by Henry.  The Henry book dedicates an entire 
chapter to the production line in Ingolstadt; something that is covered
more cursorally in the Walton book.  The Walton book goes into more 
detail about the racing history of the quattro, and in general seems to 
give more in-depth coverage then the Henry book.  

Any other thoughts or books out there?
