Extract from the "Introduction" of the original book -

"It is no exaggeration to say that in the automobile world there are a few subjects which conjure up so much interest as supercharging and turbocharging. Yet, dispite this, there are only a few books available on the subject, although magazine articles and technical papers are abound. I have therefore with this book set out to cover an outline of the history and development of the art of forced induction."

"It was my intention to make this book of partical value and interest to as wide a range of readers as possible, I have attempted to included a large percentage of practical information, laced with sufficient technical detail to give adequate technical back-up. There are chapters covering almost all aspects of forced induction, from carburation to exhaust system designs, together with sections on diesel turbocharging, motorcycles, high performance turbocharged manufactures cars and other specialised applications."

"Unlike most other books concerned with supercharging, I have written in detail about all types of supercharging, whether it be positive displacement mechanically driven or 'turbo' turbine-driven, showing the relative merits or pitfalls of each and their practical and theoretical application, together with details of design and construction of each type."
