Very much dated now, would have been even when it was only two or three years old. A lot of social change occurred very soon after this film was shot.

Very useful piece of kit, I know of nothing else to really take the hassle out of setting multiple carburettors on mult-cylinder motorbikes.

4.0 out of 5 stars One for the "special" builders, 18 Aug. 2014
First impressions were favourable; the book is big and heavy for a softback, and for the price; I suppose one has to come to like, or respect the author when a book is written in the first person, and is about themselves. That took some time a-coming after reading about one adventure when a young Odge and his mates entered into a "dice", i.e. race with a new Marina in their old American car [we've all done it!] and when they lost, rammed the hapless guy in said Marina. They then went straight to the police to file a report blaming Mr. Marina driver. It was alright though, because anyone driving a Marina must be a "knob". This writer was still churning that one over, when, later in the book, most of a chapter was devoted to being told how incredibly loyal, honest and principled the author and his team were when they were running AWOL alternative lifestyle biker magazine. Yeah, right, and, if "alternative" bikers have such a monopoly on these human virtues, why do they spend so much time falling out with each other?
But, persistence paid off, in chapters 29 and 30, there is one of the best first-hand accounts of the experience and attempted resolution of a mental breakdown I've read, making it easier to empathise and want to read more.
Mainly though, this is a review of the life of a special builder, and car and bike customiser. That, and his recent creations in particular are ingeniously designed and executed to the extent of being an inspiration to all of us who attempt similar endeavours. Worth a read.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A long and thoroughly researched tome. Bit "journalistic" in style, each chapter seems to end in an attempt at a summary intended to leave the reader with a perjorative impression, rather than one which he or she may have arrived at themselves. One feels a bit manipulated, just as if one has read a typical newspaper article.

2.0 out of 5 stars Read it if you're keen to research the old-fashioned London gangster world, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found it a bit difficult to finish and like this book, or rather its author and principal character. Goes on about honour in the underworld, but it becomes clear that such has to suit him and his mates of the moment. They're also allowed to dish out summary "justice" whenever it suits them, but its always "out of order" if it comes back on them. Woth reading though, for reasons of insight into that world

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-researched and written book, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good chronological account of Mr. Noyes's life, good detail and gives a welcome insight. The author doesn't over-glamourise, and a look into the now-extinct traditional London Gangster world is also given.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misses the mark a bit, 6 May 2013

I think a previous reviewer commented that this book does not enable one to have any real insights into the life of Carol Thatcher. I would agree, but for historians it's an o.k. read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Run of the mill action and car-chase film, 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Driver [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this because it received a favourable review in Classic Car Weekly. Maybe my expectations were consequently unreasonable or off-beam, but I found it disappointing. If one doesn't want too much of a plot or dialogue it's OK
