Reviews

"As a piston-driven primer not only to the processes of thought, labour and collaborative generosity of the fathers of steam, this book runs along a new track like - well, like a Rocket" -- Iain Finlayson The Times "Its scope and lively intelligence make it the best kind of popular account. Anyone who has ever wondered over Britain's exceptional contribution to the modern world should read it" -- Ian Jack Financial Times "Intriguing, witty account of the birth of steam power" -- Robin McKie Observer "Infectiously enthusiastic, all encompassing investigation of steam power and the men that drove the industrial revolution... A particularly fascinating account of the tangled relationship between iron, coal and steam" -- James McConnachie The Sunday Times "An enjoyable read... Wonderfully eclectic" The Economist
