"The Brompton is a wonderful account . . . every line and word snapping into place."--The Wall Street Journal

"Engineering is integral to Butler-Adams' outlook, and through this prism he wants readers to understand that components of a business cannot be seen in isolation but as part of a whole. . . . a lively read."--Financial Times
