It must be pointed out that my copy is a reprint and not an original. Some of the photographs are not quite as well rendered as in the original, and the binding is of a cheaper type; time will tell how durable this proves.
As to the content: I already have the BMC book in this series. By comparison, this is not quite as good, possibly beacause there is less information out there about Rootes than there is about BMC. The general chapters covering the history of the group are the most interesting and certainly taught me things that I didn't know. The descriptions of the individual models are short on detail, and possibly won't add much if anything to the enthusiast's knowledge.
Overall though, it's a good book both to read right through or to dip into when you've 5 minutes to spare, and a worthwhile addition to any classic enthusiast's bookshelf.

An excellent book than covers well, if somewhat briefly, the somewhat unglamorous group of companies that became Rootes.
It was good enough for me to buy a second copy to cherish. Excellent value for money.

I like reading Graham Robson car books and this is no exception. The book is full of interesting facts, history and photographs of this once major motor manufacturer. If you want to know about the Rootes Group you should buy this book.

Very good book overall though could do with an update, especially now that the Rootes Archive has so much information. Many good photographs and almost all models covered, excellent reference book. A pity that (apparently according to the book) the Rootes brothers didn't contribute as much as they could have as that would have made the book for me.

Due to purchasing the car it has been a pleasure to read and find out the history around the make and model
