This review, interesting as it is and a service to all, yada, yada, is  
merely Gary's sly way to start moving his magazine to the web, one little piece 
a time.  Watch out next for a restoration tips column, or a piece on how  to 
tell an MGA Twincam from a standard 1600.  Pretty soon he'll be  embedding 
HTLM strip ads at the bottom of his e-mails.  Pretty clever,  Gary.

To the  MG list:
I've just gotten a book for review that I wanted to share with the  MG list. 
Essential MG by Graham Robson -- available through  and for list $24.95. 160 pages, full color, 12in x 12in  hardcover.
If you were to have only one basic reference book on your shelf  covering all 
the models of MG from 1924 to the present day, this book  would fill the bill 
neatly. After a brief history of the marque, the book  provides four pages on 
each model, with two pages of text and facts, and  two pages of good 
showing the specific model and detail shots  of distinctive features.
Knowing the depth of Mr. Robson's knowledge of  British cars, his extensive 
personal files, and his care at getting things  right, I am confident that 
factual information presented in this book  is as accurate and as complete as 
historical research permits. With the  models I am most familiar, I certainly 
could find no flaws in his  presentation. If you're new to the marque, this 
book is 
a great place to  start your own library and if you're a real devotee of the 
sacred Octagon,  this book should be in your collection.
