'The story is captured here in more than 300 large-format pages, packed with colour images, technical drawing, press cuttings and more. Informative, concise and entertaining.'

'One of the very elite club of Rocket owners, author Clive Neville finished writing this book as long ago as 2011 but only recently completed the project, such was the scale of the text. With invaluable contributions from both Craft and Murray, this really does go into every nut and bolt of the amazing story from start to finish. Murray even granted unlimited access to his personal archives of notes, pictures and drawing so everything is explained in great detail and will appeal to fans of both the car and superb engineering.'

'There's a section on every Rocket made, which is weirdly fascinating even though the cars all look largely the same. It really is the full Rocket story.'
'Author Clive Neville, a Rocket owner himself, traces all 47 cars made, a chapter being given over to a chassis-by-chassis log. There is a wealth of first-hand info here, too, not least that provided by Craft who sadly died shortly after the book was published, and also Murray (we particularly enjoyed seeing his 'renderings'). It was also intriguing to see some of the alternate body styles suggested, including one car that was equipped with a front-end that echoed that of the Ferrari 156 'Sharknose' F1 car. As an aside, the book was designed by Rick Ward who created the originial Rocket logo way back when. It is attractively laid out, with high production values, and most of the images were unfamiliar. It is an acquired taste, much like the car itself, but not bad value even if the lofty £75 asking price might suggest otherwise.' By Richard Heseltine
