Edward Turner is known as the designer of the Triumph twin-cylinder motorcycle engine and, by car enthusiasts, as the designer of the excellent Daimler V8s. There was a lot more to Turner than the design of a few outstanding engines and this book tells the whole story. Turner worked his way up to lead the major players in the British motorcycle industry when Britain led the world in two-wheeler production and his Daimler association came about because Daimler was owned at the time by BSA. In depth research and the help of Turner`s family has ensured that the whole story is told.
It is a great story and well told.
