David Crawford's look at the life, times and achievements of Stanley Woods is a thing of beauty and a fitting testament to one of the world's unsung sporting heroes. Following Stanley's life from relatively humble Irish origins through to the upper limits of motorcycle racing industry through the turbulent times of the early twentieth century, the reader will be astonished at the determination of one man to succeed. Stanley's alliances with a variety of famous marques led him to become both world- famous and respected by the industry as an important and valued critic who put forward a number of ideas to improve early motorcycle engineering which helped him and the manufacturers he represented to gain success both on and off the track.
