"Covering everything from planning your project, to the building processes, through to final testing, this is a must-have title for anyone contemplating an engine build." - Classic Car Buyer "All aspects of basic preparation and modification of key engine parts are covered, and this reviewer can give the author no better compliment than to say this work ranks alongside those of the late, great Carroll Smith as far as a good sound, engineering approach to competition applications is concerned. Newcomers and experienced engine builders alike should make a space on their bookshelves for this one." - SpeedScene "An essential book for kit and specialist car enthusiasts and/or owners ... written in an understandable for us DIY-ers, supported by approximately 200 photographs and original drawings." - Totalkitcar "Even if your mechanical knowledge is limited to changing a tyre, and if you never plan to get your hands dirty, Secrets of Speed will at least make you an instant know-it-all amongst your friends." - "Written in an easy-to-read style, perfect for the DIY engine builder who wants to increase the power and reliability of their engine." - Old Stager "There a good deal of genuinely new information even for those who have built a number of engines before." - Track Driver
