    It's been awhile since I've been on here but thank you for all of you that have bought my book. It's selling out and proves that people will pay for a high-end book that's three times the size of anything before. Thank goodness for that as I only do them every 22 years! It's also Book Of The Month in Octance and Classic & Sportscar magazines so I'm very flattered.

    Here are the reviews and the links to the book if you want a free read... Steve

    It looks very good. Can it be ordered directly from you or is Amazon the way to go ?

    Unfortunately, Amazon's margin of 55% would double the cost so the publisher agreed to keep down the cost by retailing it directly. So the best thing is to either go to Porterpress.co.uk or my site which allows you to also buy it and has a bit more background on it. https://www.stevesaxty.com/buyit

    I ordered the collectors edition via a Facebook link it arrived very swiftly from Porterpress. I would highly recommend this book. Well done Steve the depth of research and presentation is a credit to you.

    Thanks Simon - yes, it's seeming to get traction now towards selling out which was a nice surprise. I only do a book every 22 years so I'm naturally glad to see the Capri scene so keen on it. Remember to post a review for it's the readers' opinions as well as mag reviews that count! - Steve

    I'm, glad you like it. I'd hope there's little more to be written now on Capri - let us know what you think when you've finished it! Steve

    What did you think then? I'm always keen to hear first impressions about the size and surprises within...

    Very impressive. A much larger book than I had imagined. It looks as though it's best read cover to cover rather than by dipping into chapters here and there. Next step is to set some time aside and make a start.

    It is my eternal failing to have not communicated it's about three times larger than the other books of days past. Yes, I urge everyone to read it as a story end-to-end. Someone who shall remain nameless said they "would only read the Cosworth stuff" but that denies the reader the chance to understand how Ford worked and where their car fits in the story.

    Your task now, if you find the time, is to enjoy it and tell others here and on social media what it's like. Word of mouth is key so all help appreciated. BTW, here's me talking through it on the day I received mine....
