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 photographs 
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 the 
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 
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.
