I bought this book following a newspaper review which appeared just before Christmas. Having recently purchased a motorcycle again after a long period away from the sport, I was searching for a book which would rekindle a feel for those halcyon days before the ultimate demise of the British motorcycle industry, a time I well remember. By a careful mix of nostalgia, industrial history and personal recall Steve Wilson manages to achieve all that for me, together with the very evocative drawings of Nicholas Ward. It proved an ideal bedtime book with the length of each chapter just about coinciding with my shortened span of night time concentration. I thoroughly recommend the book to all born-again bikers and those with a passion for British bikes.
