As usual the text is well-written and authoritative without being anoraky and the book is well laid-out and of good quality. I have no doubt that this book will be in every auction house and classic Ducati dealership the world over and no doubt in a few police stolen vehicle units. If you are even remotely considering buying one or already own one it just has to be on your bookshelf. £50.00 may seem a lot for a book, but given the information that could save you thousands by not buying a mongrel, it is money very well spent and worth every penny! --inter-bike.co.uk
Starting with a historical background, followed by model by model detail and complimented by over 1,000 high quality photographs and illustrations, Ian Falloon is to be complimented on this superb reference tome. --Jonathan Hill - freelance
[Ian Falloon's] expertise is unparalleled ... This ... is not a book for leaving out to impress visitors, but a book for grubby fingerprints, oil stains and paint overspray: a serious work of reference, by a serious writer. --Benzina
