Haynes manual - any alternatives?

Does anyone know of any reasonable alternatives to the Haynes Manual for the Mk2 Clio? I picked up a copy recently and, to be honest, the quality is atrocious especially compared to the older Haynes manuals.

OK, it's not quite useless but not having a photo of the engine layout in my particular age of car (V-reg, so late 99?) isn't what you'd call a good start - if you went 'by the book', you'd be pouring brake fluid into the power steering reservoir

Although modding doesn't float my boat, this Renault Clio: The Definitive Guide to Modifying (Haynes "Max Power" Modifying Manuals): Robert Jex looks like it might be a better bet (and appears to be written better) but apparently only covers the Mk.1

I know about the FAQs and whatnot, but prefer something I can read in bed or whilst communing with nature in the smallest room of the house
