This is the long overdue biography of a legendary industrialist, perhaps the only British motorcycle designer whose name is still well-known and revered as a true genius. Not just mototcycles such as the Bonneville but details such as the Thunderbird 'paper dart' logo, stunts such as the Gaffers' Gallop, cars such as the Daimler Dart were all Turner's. The writing is accessible and the illustrations -many from the Turner family album- are outstanding. what emerges is an insight into the triumphs, tragedies and tantrums of a man who made British motorcycling a world leader through sheer force of personality yet whose must-read report upon the impending superiority of the Japanese industry was ignored by an industry happily getting rich on updates of his earlier designs. If you want an insight into a true genius as well as the British motorcycle industry then this book is essential.
