Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks
Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks
5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable, 1 Jan 2014
As someone who has dipped into PG Wodehouse over the years, I was wary when given this for a birthday present. However, I was completely won over and thoroughly enjoyed it and I would heartily recommend it. Great fun.

An in depth look at Chapman's creative brilliance and engineering legacy. Split into chapters looking at his ideas as developed in different areas of car design. Very much about Chapman the engineer and the technical achievements of Lotus as a whole, not so much of the human side. Great read from cover to cover or as a valuable reference tool.
The Book of the Standard Motor Company by Graham Robson
7 of 7 people found the following review helpful
Having previously had an interest in one short period of Standard cars, this book was exactly what I wanted in terms of understanding the history of the marque, the key cars produced, and some of the personalities involved. The text is clear and concise, with good photographs and well laid out. There is occasional repetition between chapters, but that allows you to dip into any one area of interest and still follow the thread of the story. From small beginnings, to becoming such a major part of the Coventry landscape, through the morphing into Triumph and eventual decline as British Leyland, this book explains it all. Definitely recommended.
