Isambard Kingdom Brunel: Engineering Knight-errant

Front Cover
John Murray, 1991 - Biography & Autobiography - 285 pages
This text chronicles the life of engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and diverges from Rolt's classic study of Brunel which largely omitted the more unsavoury aspects of his character. Alongside his great achievements, this book describes a man who was obstinate, dictatorial and, in the end, paranoid.
