All of Stephen's books are just brilliant.
The photos are mainly taken in the authors' native Northern Ireland, at the Isle of Man TT and at the Scarborough track. Some of the earlier ones are in black and white and have a distinctly vintage feel about them. A nice aspect of this book is that the illustrations are not all of racing action, as there are also some interesting shots of motor cycle racing characters. I particularly liked the picture of John McGuiness with his replica TT winning Honda which lives under the stairs in his Scarborough home!
Clearly no attempt has been made to save on printing costs as this volume is of a very good quality and quite rightly so in order to do justice to the photographs. I imagine that any motor cycling enthusiast will be delighted to receive this as a present.
