This is quite possibly, the ultimate companion book to David Vizard's Tuning The A-Series engine. This book does an excellent job at telling the whole story of the A-series engine and describes in some detail every single variant, many proposed replacements, and how it soldiered on as long as it did. Graham Robson has written over 140 books on the history of the motoring industry, and in the forward he said he'd wanted to write about the a-series for some time. This book is very thouroghly researched and is perhaps the best history of our favorite little engine ever written. It does for the history what Vizard did for tuning and technical undrstanding.
