In his time, Isambard Kingdom Brunel was the world's greatest engineer. His list of achievements is truly breathtaking, the Thames Tunnel, the first underwater tunnel in the world, the SS Great Britain, the first propeller-driven, iron-built ocean-going ship, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, then the longest span of any bridge in the world and the Great Western Railway. History has been kind to his memory, many of his creations still exist and he is lauded by historians as truly a 'Great Briton'. In this, the first full-scale biography for almost sixty years, Colin Maggs presents a portrait of a complex, ambitious and determined genius. But the Brunel that emerges is not without flaws; he made mistakes, personal and technical, and he wasn't always right but never admitted he was wrong. Drawing on Brunel's diaries, letters and business papers we see the real Brunel, a more human figure, emerging from behind the towering structures and machines he created. Includes over eighty colour and black and white photographs and plans of Brunel's designs.
