    Fred Dibnah spent his spare time restoring steam engines and had a particularly high regard for the traction engine manufacturer Aveling and Porter founded by Thomas Aveling, one of the Victorian heroes profiled in this book. Reviewing the achievements of the most influential engineers of the age, the book examines the work of Brunel and Stephenson as well as less well-known figures such as Joseph Whitworth, who standardized screw threads.
