Clearly written summaries and insights regarding a long span of road tests, many along roads of the Kent/Surrey borderlands. The author puts the reader there, excellent travelogue as well as technically engaging.
I have always loved buses, probably because of the long bus rides to school as a kid. AEC Regents and old Thames Valley Bristols, the smell of diesel and hot clutches in traffic.... So when I saw this book in typical Ian Allen format I had to get it and was in no way dissapointed. It turned out to be the 'Top Gear' of the bus world in the '30's to the 50's. Proper road tests with good descriptions of the vehicles capabilities plus all the technical data supported by some of the best black and whites pictures I have come across. If you are a bus enthusiast you HAVE to have this book. I read it three times since i've had it, once to look at the great photos, once to read the well written test text and once again to put text and pictures together.Serious 10/10
