Inhaltsangabe: Isambard Kingdom Brunel was the greatest Victorian engineer, some might say one of the world's greatest of all time.

Today Isambard Kingdom Brunel is perhaps best known for the creation of the Great Western Railway, nicknamed `God's Wonderful Railway', which in 2010 celebrates its 175th anniversary, but he also pioneered the SS Great Britain, the first propeller-driven transatlantic steamship, as well as numerous important bridges and tunnels. His designs revolutionised transport engineering, but without the utilitarianism of many of his modern-day successors.

Much of Brunel's work combined the grace and elegance of classical art with modern technological thinking, which he pushed to the boundaries of what was possible in his day and then often went a further mile - mostly, but not always, with startling and resounding success.

In Halsgrove's pocket-sized hardback series of great lives, renowned railway specialist Robin Jones re-tells the inspiring story of Brunel, engineer extraordinaire.

Über den Autor: A graduate of the University of Central England, Robin Jones, founding editor of Heritage Railway magazine, was a news editor and chief investigative reporter at the Birmingham Evening Mail, and over the years has produced several books and special publications, along with historical features for numerous other newspapers and periodicals.

He has been interested in railways from a very early age, when his elder brother Stewart took him trainspotting at Widney Manor station in Solihull at the age of four, at the end of the British Railways steam age.
