This book, originally published in 1985, examines the development of the car industry in Coventry within both its local context and the wider economic environment. It is a study of expansion and adjustment which reflects the broader pattern of Britain's industrial history. The book analyses the emergence and early dominance of Coventry's motor manufacturers, the appearance of the volume producers in the 1920s and the instability of the post-war era. The relationship between cars and other sectors of the local economy, particularly cycles, machine tools and aircraft, is discussed, while the significance of the two world wars receive special attention. Extensive use is made of original sources material, much of which, prior to publication, had received little or no attention from business historians.

Automobile sind mehr als reine Gebrauchsgegenstände für die Fortbewegung von einem Ort zum anderen. Zahlreiche Fahrzeuge erlangten Kultstatus, sind das Ziel automobiler Sehnsüchte oder schrieben Technikgeschichte. Dabei wird oft vergessen, dass ein Auto nicht nur wohlgeformtes Blech auf vier Rädern ist, sondern dass in ihm auch ein feuriges Herz in Form eines Motors schlägt. Und kaum eine andere Erfindung hat das 20. Jahrhundert derart beeinflusst wie der Verbrennungsmotor. Dieses Buch ist eine Hommage an den Verbrennungsmotor und das Automobil. Es stellt mehr als 80 Motorenklassiker und die dazugehörigen Fahrzeuge vor. Dabei geht es aber nicht nur um Fahrzeuglegenden, die große Erfolge im Rennsport feierten, sondern auch um Autos und Motoren, die besondere Geschichten erzählen.

Tyler Hamilton war ein Naturtalent, einer der leidensfähigsten und zähesten Radfahrer, bei US Postal der zweite Mann hinter Lance Armstrong. In seinem Buch erzählt er, wie die Amerikaner sich in den Neunzigern die Seele aus dem Leib fuhren und dennoch keine Chance gegen europäische Teams hatten, die immer schneller waren, immer noch Luft hatten - bis die Mannschaft anfängt, sich spritzen zu lassen. Er legt offen, wie straff organisiert dieses System war, das das berühmteste Radrennen der Welt zur Tour de Farce werden ließ, wie korrupte Ärzte und skrupellose Teamchefs agieren und Mannschaften zu gut geölten Maschinen wurden. Wie eine ganze Sportart buchstäblich unter die Räder kam und eine Parallelwelt aus Lügen, Angst und Manipulation entstand, die ehemalige Helden als lädierte Wracks zurücklässt.
