    This is the next in the great series of books dealing with iconic historical machines, laid out as an owners’ workshop manual. These do not just show the workings of the machines but also give a great historical background to their existence and reason for being.

    Once again to enter the competition, just go to the entry form on Survey Monkey and complete the three simple questions and 3 lucky winners with all questions answered correctly will become owners of the Owners’ Manual.

    The book has been reviewed by Subsunk and this may be read here.

    As always, read the flaming question before answering, the answer may not be as obvious as it sounds.

    This particular competition, for the Titanic book, will run until mid day on Sunday 30th October.

    The publishers, Haynes, have kindly agreed to let us have several different manuals to review so for the next few weeks there will be a new title up for grabs in a competition - each will run for two weeks from start to finish and will go up on the site on Monday or Tuesday of each week. Plenty to get your claws into and even if you don't fancy the book, it might just be the right thing for your mother-in-law's Christmas stocking.

    Presumably the Titanic one could have had a hand written note from me saying 'Here is something that I bet you wish I HAD gone down on'?
