An electrical engineer, Rick Astley was born and educated in England. Tight budgets and a need to get to work meant he soon developed a thorough working knowledge of the many used British cars he owned; cars he later restored to an acceptable level of reliability. Even though his professional life took him to Canada and eventually to the USA, where he now lives, through membership of his local MG club he has maintained his interest in the British cars of his youth. Rick now works part-time as an electrical engineering consultant in the Motor City of Detroit.
Overall an excellent book, and this revised edition enhances what was already a great addition to an MG owner's bookshelf. Priced at GBP40 it's not cheap, but in my opinion worth every penny and an essential read for MGB enthusiast. Safety Fast. The most apparent update is more pictures and since a picture is worth a thousand words, well, then there are an extra million or two words worth of advice in the book. Every chapter in the book seems to have been expanded and improved. This book is much more that a "how to" book. It explains why the component works the way it does, how you can make improvements or modernise, and - most importantly - it is very easy to understand. This book is essential for MGB and MGC owners because of the time it will save chasing down electrical issues. - MGB Driver.
