About the Author
IAN FALLOON has enjoyed an involvement with Ducati motorcycles for nearly 40 years. In addition to writing several books covering the marque, he is an avid restorer with over 20 Ducati restorations to his credit. He enjoys a close association with the factory and the engineers, providing him with invaluable insight into the company's history and technical development.
PIERRE TERBLANCHE'S passion for automotive design led him to enroll in the Masters in Transport Design program at the Royal College of Art in London. Upon graduation, he took a position in Volkswagen’s advanced design studio. In 1989, Mr. Terblanche traded four wheels for two and joined Ducati Rimini. He has worked in motorcycle design ever since.

Falloon has chosen to give some models a more than thorough coverage (e.g. the 2006 Paul Smart replica). However personally I do miss some, for Ducati, significant bikes s.a. the Monster and Paso 750.
Especially when the title is "The Art of Ducati" these should have be included (either briefly or extensively).
Same is for the main designers (since it is called the “Art”): would have been nice to have a small chapter about them (e.g. Massimo Tamburini, Miguel Galluzi, Pierre Terblanche, Giandrea Fabbro).
Also I would have preferred models without all the race stickers since that gives the reader a better chance to Judge the lines of the bikes (e.g. 999).
I still have to wait for the ultimate Ducati coffee table book, but until then this will have to do.
A little out of date now, only goes up to the 1199 Panigale & Diavel.
