Good on technicals,

This review is from: Fedden - The Life of Sir Roy Fedden (Paperback)
Although he was a tremendously contributor to aero engine development and success of Bristol Aeroplane Company this seems to be the only biography. Bill Gunson was a great technical writer with clarity to technical and non technical alike so that side is very well covered but unfortunately Sir Roy remains a one dimensional figure and we get no insight into his soul and his relationships. The somewhat stormy relationship with Bristol board members is delat with but greater insight into the personalities would have made the story less one sided. But overall a welcome biography of a great pioneer and brilliant intuitive engineer.
